2022 Edition of the CHA Community Benefit Guide is Now Available
As part of its commitment to confront racism by achieving health equity CHA has updated it's Guide to Planning and Reporting Community Benefit to show how a focus on health equity can be incorporated into community benefit processes.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Public Health Association, and American Medical Association have declared racism a threat to public health. By incorporating a health equity lens in community benefit programs, hospitals can be critical partners in identifying and addressing the negative health impacts of systemic racism on the communities they serve.
The Guide is available in electronic (free to CHA members) and hardcopy formats and can be ordered in the CHA Store. A video outlining the 2022 updates is available on the CHA website.
