Guiding Principles for Health Equity and Social Justice

PHI's CA4Health has been exploring how their program office and members can collectively embody their commitment to health equity. Following the PolicyLink Equity Summit in April 2018, members of our CA4Health delegation collaborated to craft a set of intentions related to equity that will keep the energy and lessons alive for the network.

PHI’s CA4Health has been exploring how their program office and members can collectively embody their commitment to health equity. Following the PolicyLink Equity Summit in April 2018, members of the CA4Health delegation collaborated to craft a set of intentions related to equity that will keep the energy and lessons alive for the network. The first outcome from these discussions is CA4Health’s Guiding Principles for Health Equity and Justice. These principles express their commitment to equity and will inform how they assess what policies and/or actions CA4Health will support.

The Principles include:

  • People power
  • A right to health for all
  • Acknowledging systems and history of inequity
  • Leveraging privilege for impact
  • Centering community voices and community narratives
  • Intersectional movement building
  • Moving to action
  • Inclusion and accessibility
