Alliance for Health Equity

The Alliance for Health Equity is dedicated to improving population and
community health in Chicago and Cook County through promoting health equity, capacity building, addressing social and structural determinants of health, systems change, and policy advocacy. The Alliance for Health Equity is one of the largest collaborative hospital-community partnerships in the country with the current involvement of 30+ nonprofit and public hospitals, seven local health departments, and representatives of nearly 100 community organizations serving on action teams.


In 2019, the Alliance for Health Equity completed a collaborative Community Health Needs Assessments (CHNA) for Chicago and Suburban Cook County. The report builds on the previous assessments and allows partners to identify strategic priorities that they can collectively address to improve community health. You can access a copy of the report and the appendices by clicking below.
