Health Equity

Working Toward a System That Works for Everyone
Published: May 13, 2021 | Updated: September 14, 2022

CHI is committed to working toward a state where health equity is a reality.

Through policy analysis, strategic facilitation, and data-driven research, we identify complex challenges and promising solutions. Our goal is to support our community in understanding the drivers of inequality, clarifying the effects of inequality on health for individuals and communities, and making changes to policies, systems, and culture to create a more equitable future. Health equity is a focus of all of our work.
