Health Equity Learning Network

In 2023, the NGA Center convened states to discuss approaches and communication strategies regarding health equity. The NGA team compiled information from discussions in these convenings as well as in learning calls and research to identify high-level themes and insights.

  • Centering community voice and priorities in health equity work, and
  • Integrating equity into policymaking.
