Since its inception in 2003, the Center to Eliminate Health Disparities (CEHD) has been involved in a number of projects designed to address health inequities through advancing Health System solutions and addressing the Social Determinants of Health, two core areas of work for the CEHD. Recognizing that long term solutions require vastly increased attention to and capacity for effecting change at the micro and macro levels, Global Health and Leadership Training have emerged as additional core work areas for the CEHD.
