Who We Are
The Oregon Health Equity Alliance (OHEA) is a collective effort of regional and state partners who seek to make Oregon a more equitable place for all. OHEA seeks to enact smart policies to improve our regional and statewide health and wellbeing through public policy, legislation, and policies that govern our workplaces, schools and communities. We build from an accomplished record of statewide policy wins in areas including cultural competency for health professionals, prenatal care for all women, data equity standards, and supporting a growing traditional health workforce.
OHEA is open to organizations who serve constituents facing health inequities in the Tri-County region of Clackamas, Washington and Multnomah counties. We have established a diverse, dynamic and effective coalition of 33 member organizations, and adopted a five-year Regional Health Equity Plan. Together we educate, organize and advocate for community-driven solutions to improve our health and wellbeing. We believe every Oregonian should have an equal chance to achieve their full health potential.
