Mission & Vision

CHEIR develops interventions and strategies that incorporate research, community collaboration and health equity approaches to improve the health of populations and communities most impacted by disparities.
In order to fulfill this mission, we:
  • Tailor interventions to meet cultural identities, beliefs and literacy levels.
  • Engage vulnerable populations in the settings that serve them.
  • Establish processes to continuously learn from each other and improve the work we do.
CHEIR, a national leader on the root causes of disparities, transforms the way communities, researchers, and health practitioners develop and use evidence and tools to promote health equity.
