Health and health care inequities remain deep and persistent. Given this landscape, what can health funders do to promote health equity? To address this and other questions, GIH sought the perspectives of leading thinkers in the health equity arena on where the field has been and needs to go. To identify key opportunities, leaders in government, philanthropy, academia, public health, and other fields were interviewed to seek their recommendations for health funders. What emerged were several areas of strong consensus regarding new directions that health foundations should consider, as well as other promising strategies that have yet to garner broad support. This audiconference focused on GIH’s latest report, Striving for Health Equity: Opportunities as Identified by Leaders in the Field, which highlights funder strategies along a continuum of upstream and downstream approaches to address health disparities.
