HPIO fact sheet outlines actions private sector can take to address racism
December 10, 2021
The Health Policy Institute of Ohio has released a new fact sheet as a companion to its Connections between Racism and Health brief.
The fact sheet, the second in a series of three, outlines actions private sector partners can take to support the health and well-being of Ohioans of color and move Ohio toward a more economically vibrant and healthy future. The first fact sheet provided action steps for state and local policymakers.
“Ohioans of color, in particular, continue to face barriers to good health and well-being that are rooted in racism and centuries of unjust practices,” the fact sheet states. “However, improvement is possible and there are many actions private sector organizations can take to support the health of every Ohioan.”
Last year HPIO released a data brief, "Connections between Racism and Health: Taking Action to Eliminate Racism and Advance Equity" and an accompanying resource page to support state and local efforts to eliminate racism.
