More than 950 hospitals and health systems have signed the #123forEquity Pledge to Eliminate Health Care Disparities.
The campaign, launch at this summer’s AHA-Health Forum Leadership Summit, seeks to build on and accelerate the efforts of the National Call to Action to Eliminate Health Disparities launched in 2011 by the AHA and other partner organizations. It asks hospital leaders to pledge to achieve the three equity aims within the next 12 months; provide updates on progress to the AHA and their boards; and share their success in promoting diversity and health equity with the public.
The AHA urges all its hospital and health system members to take the pledge and advance health equity as a national priority. Click here to learn more.
