About Us


Health equity means all people, regardless of who they are, where they came from, how they identify, where they live, or the color of their skin, have a fair and just opportunity to live their healthiest possible lives – in body, mind, and community. Achieving health equity requires removing social, economic, contextual, and systemic barriers to health, and a continuous and explicit commitment to prioritize those affected by historical disadvantages.

CityHealth works to advance policies at the local level to reduce or remove systemic barriers to health equity. Equity principles and criteria are embedded throughout CityHealth’s policy package.
