New Haven Health Equity Alliance
From 2009-2012, the New Haven Health Departmentwas selected to serve as a pilot site for the Health Equity Alliance, a project of the Connecticut Association of Directors of Health (CADH). The CADH project's website is available at http://www.healthequityalliance.us/.
The goal of the Health Equity Alliance (HEA) is to create the conditions necessary for people to be healthy rather than treating them after they have already become sick. This will require dramatic change in New Haven – focusing the city’s policy reforms and investments towards prevention while working to eliminate health disparities.
The 2011 Health Matters conference was a major success, attracting over 150 residents and community-based organizations. A number of new reports were released at the conference, including:
