Increasing Access to COVID-19 Vaccines: How Trusted Messengers Cultivate Interdependence and Break Through Barriers
Access to high-quality, affordable health care is critical in creating healthier populations. Yet much of what makes people healthy is determined outside the doctor’s office—from housing and safety to education and employment. That’s why physicians today investigate housing conditions to prevent asthma, why banks invest in childcare centers, and why hospitals address hunger in neighboring communities. To ensure successful collaboration and better health, PHI brings together a broad cross-section of partners. PHI programs help align resources, guide strategic investments, and uncover financing and payment mechanisms that make healthcare—and health—accessible, affordable and effective. For everyone.
Building Health Equity
PHI’s Faces for Future Program supports underserved high schoolers academically and socially, and prepares them for medical careers. In 2019, FACES students in Denver completed Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) coursework; preparing them to take the CNA exam by the end of the school year and receive their certifications: giving them access to entry-level positions right out of high school; stabilizing their incomes; and launching their health career paths. In 2019, 100% of the 866 FACES students across the US graduated from high school on time. 99% of them are continuing on to post-secondary education.
