Efforts to make children's hospitals and health care more diverse, equitable and inclusive span the industry and influence nearly every aspect of care. Here are a few ways CHA—and our members—are working toward that goal.

Addressing Health Equity

Inequities continue to be pervasive in health care, even in pediatric organizations with long-standing missions to provide care to all children.

Sharing Ideas

Children's hospitals are leveraging each other and outside organizations to hone their efforts to advance DEI initiatives.

  • CHA's diversity, equity and inclusion community offers member hospitals opportunities to share, network and collaborate on DEI initiatives, strategies and challenges.
  • The USDA is leading a whole-department approach to tackling food and nutrition insecurity. In part one of a series focused on promoting food access, learn what nutrition security is and how it intersects with food security, health equity and structural racism.

Improving Patient Care

The delivery of high-quality patient care relies on a diverse and inclusive workforce.
