A Journey through the Equity Initiative
The Equity Initiative was launched in 2016 with an ambitious, long-term goal: to promote health equity in Southeast Asia, particularly among the most vulnerable and marginalized people. Achieving that goal requires a network of leaders who have the knowledge, insights, and skills to advance equity principles and practices. Our new publication, Transformative Leadership for Health Equity: A Journey through the Equity Initiative(2016-2022) shares program highlights and impacts from EI’s first six cohorts of Fellows. Sections on “The Power of Collaboration” and “Taking Many Paths to Health Equity” show some of the ways that Fellows are putting their EI experience into practice, as they find strength in diversity, build communities for health equity, and, ultimately, take steps to advance health equity both within their countries and across the region.
