- The Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI), the convening organization of 100MLives, has a strategic priority to address equity with the external partners, health systems, and communities they work with. IHI’s Equity team recently published a new White Paper to the IHI blog, Achieving Health Equity: A Guide for Health Care Organizations. This white paper provides guidance on how health care organizations can reduce health disparities related to racial or ethnic group; religion; socioeconomic status; gender; age; mental health; cognitive, sensory, or physical disability; sexual orientation or gender identity; geographic location; or other characteristics historically linked to discrimination or exclusion.
