Systems-Driven Health Infographic

The community in which people live, work, learn, and play has a tremendous impact on their ability to stay healthy and/or effectively cope with disease and crisis. Many social and economic factors affect the health and well-being of our communities and range across many aspects of our lives. Addressing such factors require the participation and work of many sectors of the community.

You can make a difference in your neighborhood, city, and/or community by joining our social movement for health equity and supporting our programs!
