The Health Equity Forum launches as a new dynamic platform for exchanging ideas, best practices, and developing action-oriented strategies and global collaborations to reduce health inequalities.
“We need to start the conversation and not only convene leaders from the healthcare space, but also government, civil society, and other multi-stakeholders. Without partnerships, we are going nowhere.” - Sergio Fernandez de Córdova, Chairman of the PVBLIC Foundation.
The world needs the
Health Equity Forum
As much as 80 percent of health issues are influenced by what are called Social Determinants of Health (SDoH). These include the environment, education and literacy, individual behaviors, and social circumstances such as systemic racism and socio-economic realities.

These issues are too diverse, critical, and complex to be solved by any one organization alone. The creation of long-lasting and sustainable impact and change requires true collaboration and partnership between private and public entities.
We believe health and wellness to be the greatest social equalizer and our vision is to create a coalition of action-driven partners to galvanize change, create a lasting impact and, ultimately, improve health and wellness for all.
“What you need to do is pull those efforts together under one umbrella. You will inspire many in this process. And by doing so, we may have a chance of tackling not only health but education and poverty.” - Amir Dossal, Founder and President, Global Partnerships Forum.
Why join the
Health Equity Forum
Odds are that your own organization is facing multiple challenges in its own efforts to impact SDoH: Lack of insights and research, redundancies from working in silos, funding, limited awareness of which groups are making a real impact and how, and of the intricacies of SDoH in general.
Joining the Health Equity Forum now gives you the rare opportunity to get in at the ground level to help ensure that we all can make a real, measurable impact in the fight for health equity. Not just in our own individual communities, but in communities all over the world.
Who should join?
Any business or organization, public or private, with an interest in the fight for health equity is encouraged to join. This includes NGOs, pharmaceutical and health insurance companies, healthcare systems, hospitals, advocacy groups, departments of public health, academia, and more.
