The Regional Health Equity Coalitions (RHECs) are collaborative, community-driven cross sector groups organized regionally to identify policy, system and environmental solutions that increase health equity for underserved and underrepresented communities experiencing health disparities. Coalitions build on the inherent strengths of their local communities to craft and implement sustainable, long-term solutions to decrease health disparities.
The Coalitions work with coordinated care organizations (CCO's), local health departments, other health systems, and cross sector partners to serve as a bridge to communities experiencing health inequities.
This program is funded by the Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) and Health Promotion Chronic Disease Prevention (HPCDP) in addition to other funding sources RHECs receive.
