Early Childhood Health Equity (ECHE) work strengthens early childhood systems to support healthy child development and reduce health inequities that can have a lifelong impact.
To help policymakers, advocates, communities, and families understand efforts to improve health equity and the well-being of children and families, the Early Childhood Health Equity Initiative Explorer presents information about 143 cross-sector initiatives that aim to advance health equity for young children and their families. The tool allows users to sort these initiatives by state, health and well-being focus, service sectors, funding sources, and age groups.
This tool is a snapshot of survey results from March 2020 that can help users understand how initiatives employ cross-sector partnerships to improve health equity. This tool can also help communities and policymakers connect with other local and national initiatives to support program design and policy making to advance health equity in early childhood.
