The Collective for Health Equity and Well-Being

Cooperative Extension’s Collective for Health Equity and Well-Being is a community of Extension personnel and their partners united by their shared commitment to advancing health equity and well-being. Members work together to support the implementation of Cooperative Extension’s National Framework for Health Equity and Well-Being (2021) to ensure that all people can be as healthy as they can be.

Health Justice and the Drivers of Inequity


"Structural inequities are the root cause of unjust disparities in community health outcomes. Given that uprooting structural discrimination is key to improving health for all, public health workers and policymakers need innovative, powerful law and policy tools to get results."

In a recent blog post, Sarah de Guia of ChangeLab Solutions shares a relatively new and growing approach to improving community health articulated in ChangeLab's  health justice framework.  The framework adds "crucial new ideas to the larger conversation on structural discrimination and health equity."
