Consistent with the Satcher Health Leadership Institute’s mission and vision, the Division of Health Policy provides leadership and prepares leaders committed to promoting policies and practices that reduce disparities and advance health equity. Our work is multidisciplinary, acknowledging that achieving health equity requires a health-in-all-policies approach that collaborates across sectors and disciplines.
To this end, our work is focused on:
Developing, training, and engaging emerging and established leaders and students in the promotion, development, and implementation of policies and practices that reduce disparities and advance health equity.
Engaging communities, organizations, and leaders across all sectors to advance policies to improve the conditions for optimal health and health equity.
Conducting and collaborating on research that informs best practices, models, and policies that reduce disparities and advance health equity.
Informing and influencing policy and resource allocation to promote health equity through testimonies, publications, and active communication of relevant and timely information to decision makers, professional organizations, and the public.
