Aligning for Equity helps build systems so that everyone — in every community — can be healthy and thrive. These systems are powered by community wisdom and the voices of people across ages, races, cultures, and neighborhoods.
Building on the research and learnings from Aligning Systems for Health, Aligning for Equity is focused on translating these findings for community-driven action. Aligning for Equity remains committed to
- Centering the voices of people most affected by poor health
- Sharing decision-making power between organizations and community
- Collaborating across the health care, public health, social services systems, and community
- Creating learning opportunities with communities, collaboratives, and researchers
Aligning for Equity, led by the Georgia Health Policy Center and the Institute of Women & Ethnic Studies with support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is focused on working on-the-ground in four community pilots, conducting research and evaluation, building a community of practice and peer learning opportunities, and sharing learnings about what it takes for communities to lead and design a healthier future.
