How can cross-sector partnerships advance health equity?

Since 2019, ChangeLab Solutions has provided legal and policy assistance to 18 communities across the United States through The BUILD Health Challenge®, supporting strategies to boost food access, maternal health, affordable housing, and other health-promoting initiatives.

"ChangeLab Solutions has shared invaluable resources that have helped remove barriers to governmental services that affect women, infants, and children." - Natasha Butler, Project Manager at Maternal Upstream Management
