An Inclusive Organization
Community Health Centers were established in the mid-1960s in the context of the civil rights movement and the war on poverty to increase access to care for low-income and underserved populations.
In the last several decades since the first demonstration programs opened their doors, health centers have made great strides in adopting and developing new models of care that recognize the social, economic, and cultural constructs that impact health and access to care.
As health centers continue to learn and evolve to better support and be part of communities, many are looking inward at how systemic and institutional racism and biases may be showing up in their organizations.
This toolkit was developed as part of the Building an Inclusive Organization Learning Collaborative hosted by the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved, the National Health Care for the Homeless Council, and the Association of Asian Pacific Community Health Organizations.
