We live in a dynamic world—where new technologies, changes in our economy, evolving demographics and more—continually shape where and how we live, learn, work and play. These changes will profoundly impact health equity in our society, from our individual health and the health of our families to the health of our communities. What dramatic changes might we see in the next decade or two? What can we do today to create a better, more equitable tomorrow for everyone? Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible. This requires removing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including the lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and health care. We believe the Coordinated Assistance Network (CAN) is the framework to a future where all can experience health equity through communication, collaboration and technology.

The CAN seeks to answer tough questions, anticipate the future, and use an unconventional approach with breakthrough ideas that can help lead the way to a future where everyone in the United States can live their healthiest life possible. It’s time to connect the aid and assistance directly to the need.
