OPHI is a leader in collaborative policy change initiatives throughout Oregon and across the country. We work with community stakeholders and decision makers to find and use the tools and resources they need to be successful.
OPHI champions systems change with clear-sighted methodologies. We connect the dots between health, public health and health care policies, and advance equity in those policies.
In the past year, OPHI has convened community leaders with the governor’s advisors to discuss equity in all policies, has led community dialogues on issues such as climate change and violence, and has provided technical assistance to Community Advisory Councils as they work to improve health and embed community voice in their decision making. OPHI also works with community leaders in 24 Oregon cities through the HEAL Cities Program (Healthy Eating Active Living), and is a member of the Oregon Health Equity Alliance and Allies for a Healthier Oregon.
