Focus On Disparities - GIH Skip Navigation

Disparities

Despite some progress in reducing health disparities, systematic differences in health status and health outcomes persist for low-income individuals, communities of color, LGBTQ people, and other vulnerable populations. Health philanthropy plays a critical role in elevating and supporting strategies to eliminate health disparities. GIH works to inform and advise funders about opportunities to address health disparities and also highlights promising practices to advance health equity.

This new scan of the field explores how grantmakers are addressing neighborhood factors that influence the health of communities such as housing, community development, the built environment, and transportation.
