ABOUT THE PLEDGE CAMPAIGN

The American Hospital Association (AHA) launched the #123 for Equity Pledge to Act Campaign in July 2015, building upon the National Call to Action to Eliminate Health Care Disparities. With two years of progress, the pledge now urges hospital and health system leaders to continue to develop and implement strategies to increase the collection and use of race, ethnicity, and language preference and sociodemographic data; advance cultural competency training; and increase diversity in leadership and governance. In addition, a fourth goal has been added to improve and strengthen community partnerships.

To accelerate progress toward eliminating health disparities, increasing quality of care and advancing diversity and inclusion in health care, all hospitals are being called on to make these efforts a priority. Please consider endorsing the pledge today, and join us as we encourage and support hospitals and health care systems to achieve their heath equity goals.
