A time to connect and collaborate to advance community health, well-being, and equity.
Long-standing health care disparities and inequities have been illuminated and exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. Systemic inequities, such as structural racism and economic disadvantages within diverse communities, are preventing individuals – and their communities - from achieving optimal health, leading to avoidable differences in health outcomes.
At the same time, the pandemic has elevated the need for hospitals and community-based organizations to connect, collaborate and take action to directly affect the determinants of health and improve health equity in communities across the country.

The AHA Community Health Improvement network, an affiliate of the American Hospital Association, is the premier national association for community health, community benefit and population health professionals. We provide educational resources and tools, professional development and networking opportunities to help health leaders expand their knowledge and enhance their performance in achieving community health goals.
The Institute for Diversity and Health Equity, part of the American Hospital Association (AHA), works closely with health services organizations to advance health equity for all and to expand leadership opportunities for ethnic minorities in health management. We have long believed that promoting diversity within health care leadership and tackling health disparities is critical to ensuring the highest quality of care for everyone.
The Health Equity Roadmap is a framework to help hospitals and health care systems chart their own paths toward transformation — thus becoming more equitable and inclusive organizations.
