Advancing social justice

Why this?

Data and evidence are the pillars of our work, but they can’t change the world. People change the world. We know from those we serve that health research has not helped everyone in our society equally. That’s why we have committed to advocate in particular for research that can benefit underserved populations. We hope that, through building mutual trust and respect, these individuals and communities will also advocate for us.


  • Champion research that is person-centered and advances social justice

Our plan includes these actions:

  • Advocate for and promote research that will benefit underserved populations.
  • Be a strong and proactive voice to aid in the communication and implementation of new knowledge that could support underserved populations.
