Title: Community Solutions for Health Equity

Organization: Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Description: The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted that communities of color are disproportionately burdened by racist and oppressive systems — from health care to education to housing — with significant consequences to physical and mental health. Community Solutions for Health Equity is a program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RFJF) launched in the summer of 2019. It is focused on elevating the voices of communities of color and other communities left out of discussions when local health care systems in the United States are creating policy. Racism and bias are often at the root of communities of color and other communities being excluded from policy considerations, often by design. This program attempts to address those issues directly: by supporting communities to identify a problem that negatively affects consumers; envision solutions; and partner with health care systems to implement them.
