Johns Hopkins Center
for Health Equity

At the Center for Health Equity, we envision a community, a nation, and a world in which every person can achieve his or her best health.

We strive to, first, identify and remove barriers to optimal health, and second, develop and provide the resources, programs, and support systems that will help people from disadvantaged comunities become, and stay, well.

We are highly committed change agents. We are working to make healthcare institutions more equitable, communities more engaged, and health policies and practices more effective so as to eliminate disparities in health and healthcare in Baltimore, the United States, and the world.

We understand health inequity is a complex problem that requires careful investigation from multiple perspectives. Our multi-faceted approach integrates research, community activation, education, and policy translation, and develops leaders. In our daily work we draw upon values that are critical to achieving health equity, such as respect, integrity, trustworthiness, collaboration, rigor, innovation, and social justice, to guide our actions.
