iREACH Initiative

The BARHII iREACH (impacting Regional Educational Attainment to Change Health) Initiative was developed by BARHII’s Internal Capacity Committee (ICC) with the purpose to move the current practice of our member health departments to more explicitly address the determinants of health equity by facilitating a learning community of local health department champions to promote strategies within current programming and spheres of influence to address the educational achievement gap.

The resources provided here are intended for use by staff from BARHII’s member health departments to support their efforts in addressing educational attainment in their communities through their program work.
