Building the Capacity of Public Health to Advance Equity

The National Collaborative for Health Equity (NCHE) and Milken Institute School of Public Health at the George Washington University (Milken Institute SPH) of Washington, DC; along with Prevention Institute (PI) of Oakland, Calif., will take stock of existing public health departments’ practices and policies relevant to equity, community engagement, and social determinants of health. Using this data, they will identify opportunities and strategies that health departments can employ to advance racial, social, and health equity.

“Everyone deserves the opportunity to attain their highest level of health. The National Collaborative for Health Equity is leading us there by building a diverse team of change agents, who together can reduce health disparities and create the healthiest nation.”

Georges C. Benjamin, MD, Executive Director of APHA, American Public Health Association

“At a time when racial/ethnic and socioeconomic inequality is increasingly in the national headlines, the National Collaborative for Health Equity is building on more than a decade of related work with diverse community leaders across America. Together they are building support for interventions that help to identify and undo the health consequences of racism, the embedded belief in a hierarchy of human value. Their work continues to help communities and our nation heal.”
