We’re focused on achieving health equity for the millions of Coloradans facing unjust health outcomes.
All Coloradans experience challenges with the health care system at one point or another in their lives; however, data show that the system has disadvantaged some Coloradans more than others. Certain populations experience greater health inequities due to historic and systemic injustices present within our society and our health care system. Achieving health equity means eliminating these preventable disparities based on race or ethnicity, age, ability, sexual orientation, gender, socioeconomic status, geography, citizenship status, or religion.
It’s a big and complex job. Thankfully, we’re not alone in this work.
Our nonprofit, legislative, medical, and community partners are all experts focusing on particular geographic areas or populations. Our members and partners provide critical support that drives our mission forward. Our board and staff work hard every day to ensure all Coloradans have the opportunity to access good health care and good health. Combining the expertise and motivation of all these changemakers with the empowered voices of our fellow Coloradans is the most effective way to achieve health equity and create lasting change in our communities. We lead collaboration that confronts challenges from all sides. In doing so, we find commonsense solutions that transform the health and lives of our neighbors and make Colorado stronger.
