Health Equity Resources

Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible, and health centers are uniquely positioned to help achieve this. We know that clinical care accounts for about 20 percent of health outcomes, while the other 8 percent is attributable to social and economic factors, the physical environment, and health behaviors. Understanding and responding to patients’ social needs is therefore a critical component of achieving improved health outcomes. CHAD’s health equity program of work will lead health centers in an upstream movement in healthcare, identifying populations, needs, and trends that may impact outcomes, healthcare experiences, and cost of care through analysis of social risk factors. As part of this work, CHAD supports health centers in implementing the Protocol for Responding to and Assessing Patients’ Assets, Risks, and Experiences (PRAPARE) screening tool and bridging state and community partnerships to collaboratively advance health equity in our states.  

We invite you to take a virtual tour through CHAD’s multi-media collection of resources on health equity, antiracism, and ally development. Here you will find tools, articles, books, movies, documentaries, and podcasts covering a wide range of topics. Our plan is to make this page ever-evolving and learn together. To recommend a resource, contact Shannon Bacon.
