Listening, Learning and Leading Together: BUILD Health Challenge

Racial equity is the critical social issue of our time, a potent lever to create conditions for ALL to be healthy and thrive. There is an urgent need to facilitate and amplify community-centered efforts to remove economic and social obstacles to health such as poverty and discrimination, and ensure that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy.

The question on the minds of many is: how can we best support communities in their efforts to advance health equity given the realities exposed in 2020? To answer this question, the BUILD Health Challenge undertook a Listening Tour this year, co-designed with BUILD awardees and funders to better understand ways to address racial equity, center community members, and strengthen cross-sector partnerships to drive system changes.


BUILD’s new Listening Tour report highlights learnings from the field, testimonials from community leaders, and how BUILD is reimagining the future of community health.
