Health Equity Learning Network – National Governors Association


In 2023, the NGA Center convened states to discuss approaches and communication strategies regarding health equity. The NGA team compiled information from discussions in these convenings as well as in learning calls and research to identify high-level themes and insights.

The three themes that emerged as top health equity priorities for states are:

  • Coordinating health equity initiatives across agencies,
  • Centering community voice and priorities in health equity work, and
  • Integrating equity into policymaking.

In 2024, the NGA Center will facilitate a learning network of states and territories interested in advancing their health equity goals, with a kick-off event in March.

To learn more about this opportunity please contact Dr. Shelby Hockenberry, Program Director, at [email protected], or Anna Heard, Senior Policy Analyst, at [email protected].
