In 2018, BARHII will achieve four major outcomes:
+ Protect Health Equity Gains for health equity communities across the Bay Area by supporting nine local Public Health Departments (LHDs) to implement safety protections, use public health voice to defend civil rights, and preserve funding that advances health equity.
+ Create Healthier Communities for tens of thousands of Bay Area residents by ensuring five jurisdictions adopt policies that expand housing affordability and economic opportunity.
+ Advance Racial Equity through technical assistance to seven LHDs implementing human resources or budget justice projects that will reduce institutional racism in hiring, promoting, purchasing, and spending.
+ Empower 200 Health Equity Leaders from local public health departments with new skills to advance health equity.
