Health Equity Topics


The AAMC Collaborative for Health Equity: Act, Research, Generate Evidence (CHARGE) brings together investigators, clinicians, and community partners so that they may learn, share, and improve upon the design, conduct, and implementation of research that aims to eliminate inequities in health and health care.

Health Equity Systems Approach

The nation’s academic medical centers and their public health, community-based, and other partners are working to achieve health equity by improving population and community health and by making health care safer and more accessible, affordable, and equitable.
