Health Equity

An Action Guide to Disrupt Inequitable Health Outcomes (2023)

In 2022, the Pfizer Multicultural Health Collective (The Collective) and its partner co-conveners – including The Century Foundation, the National Minority Quality Forum, the Morehouse School of Medicine, and the National Association of County and City Health Officials – convened a Summit, “Health Equity in Action: Optimal Interventions to Systemic Drivers of Racial Health Inequities”. The Summit brought together thought leaders from industry, research and academic institutions, healthcare settings, advocacy organizations, and others to surface key opportunities to address racism and structural inequities that contribute to racial and ethnic healthcare disparities.

As a follow-up to this Summit, The Collective then partnered with a working group of more than 30 individuals to co-author ‘An Action Guide to Disrupt Inequitable Health Outcomes’ highlighting actionable solutions to disrupt drivers of health inequities across four key areas:

  • Healthcare Facilities & Delivery
  • Research & Data
  • Workforce Pathways
  • Policy
