Safe, equitable and high quality health care for all is the common goal of an innovative partnership between the Institute for Diversity and Health Equity (IFDHE) and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois (BCBSIL). To spread this initiative to support underserved communities throughout Illinois, a new partnership grant program was launched in 2020 to help hospitals and health systems expand services related to maternal and child health, pediatric asthma, adult diabetes, breast cancer and geographic disparities, including access to care in rural communities.
