FOR ALL PEOPLE TO THRIVE, EACH INDIVIDUAL MUST HAVE OPPORTUNITIES TO BE HEALTHY AND INCLUDED IN A VIBRANT COMMUNITY.
SOCIAL AND ECONOMIC CONDITION SHOULD NOT STAND IN THE WAY OF HEALTH AND WELLNESS.
We are a society based on the belief that all people deserve equal treatment and opportunity. In reality, circumstances and systems can create barriers to equality. Those barriers must be removed and replaced with support, access, and opportunity — this is the work of health equity.
OUR MISSION & VISION
We transform systems, policies, and practices to create equitable health outcomes and enduring health equity.
We work to ensure all people have the equal opportunity for a healthy life. We address the critical social, economic, and environmental conditions that impact health in communities with the poorest health outcomes by engaging communities, fostering learning and innovation, and advocating for system-wide changes.
