About Us Purpose

OUR MISSION is to engage research, training and action related to health equity that effectively supports communities to become more healthy, sustainable, resilient, and just.

OUR VISION is a world in which race, ethnicity, geography, income, education, gender, age, nationality, sexual orientation, and other socially constructed factors do not predict health outcomes, where public systems and institutions are fair and inclusive, and where all people have access to the resources they need for good health and to make healthy choices.

OUR VALUES are health equity guided by the values of respect for science and research, social justice, integrity, respect for persons, heterogeneity, and community solidarity.
