The AAMC Collaborative for Health Equity: Act, Research, Generate Evidence (CHARGE) cultivates the health equity community by advancing collaborative research, policy, and programmatic solutions to health and health care inequities. 

Colleagues discussing during conference workshop

The vision of AAMC CHARGE is an equitable and just society in which academic health centers and their multisector and community partners:

  • Prioritize health equity research, action and policy change.
  • Partner with communities, families, patients, and sectors outside health care to address the many factors that contribute to a community's health.
  • Advocate for structural changes that address the root causes of health inequities.

Check out what AAMC CHARGE and the AAMC Center for Health Justice have accomplished together:
