Next Steps in Health Equity: Addressing Racial and Economic Inequality

New York, New York

July 19, 2016

Review a Social Media Recap

Health philanthropy has played a critical role in efforts to reduce disparities in health care and tackle the complex factors at the root of unequal health outcomes. As foundations seek new ways to advance health equity, there are calls for the field to move further upstream and address widening racial and economic inequality, which has profound effects on the health of low-income people, communities of color, and other vulnerable populations. 

This strategy session brought together funders for a high-level discussion about innovative strategies to improve health by reducing racial and economic inequality, advancing social justice, and investing in long term systems change. This meeting explored how other funders are grappling with these challenging issues, fostering cross-sector collaboration, and sharing ideas for next steps in health equity.

Next Steps in Health Equity: Addressing Racial and Economic Inequality took place on Tuesday, July 19, 2016 in New York, New York, at Philanthropy New York.
