At Unite Us, we bring together partners from government, healthcare, and the community to identify and elevate local needs by building an inclusive infrastructure that increases equitable access to resources and improves health for all.

Health equity is a guiding priority of Unite Us. We partner with communities through an intersectional approach to build a network that provides people a fair opportunity to access the resources they need to not only survive but thrive – leading to health equity.

In this new video, our team shares their perspective on health equity and how it applies to their role and work at Unite Us.

 

“Social justice and health are inextricably linked. Everyone deserves equal opportunity and rights and that includes the right to health. Our work at Unite Us hinges on our ability to acknowledge the injustices faced by the communities we serve and build multi-sector networks to address the communities’ unmet social needs.”

- Sheeba Ibidunni, Strategic Sales Director

See more in our new resource, Health Equity, where we take a deeper dive into the role that structural racism and systemic discrimination across race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, location, gender, ability, and sexual orientation play in health disparities of marginalized populations. Learn more about:

 

  • Structural racism and history of disparities;
  • COVID-19’s disparate impact on marginalized communities;
