Public Health Initiative


HEC’s Public-Health Initiative (PHI) brings together policy, education and organizing to achieve health equity.  It promotes Health in All Policies and organizes with the community to improve social equity which builds health equity.  PHI is funded through a partnership with the City of Albuquerque (CoA) with a goal to increase public health in CoA policy development and decision making. 

Within PHI  the Health-Equity Council 1) researches and provides public-health policy, program and environment recommendations to the City of Albuquerque, 2) builds and facilitates public-health education including stress resiliency, healthy masculinity and public health 101, 3) supports CoA interdepartmental collaboration for public health, and 4) organizes across the city to promote social equity.
