Reducing health disparities for Illinois residents by addressing the conditions that lead to poor health outcomes
PRITZKER COMMUNITY HEALTH INITIATIVE
The Pritzker Community Health Initiative (PCHI) seeks to reduce health disparities for Illinois residents by being an active partner in addressing the conditions that lead to poor health outcomes. The Foundation’s investments work to achieve health equity by investing directly in providers’ capacity to serve patients and spurring the development of innovative healthcare delivery models that will result in better care for the most vulnerable.
PCHI is working to expand health care access for Illinois families. By expanding access, our work will reduce the number of uninsured children in Illinois by 50 percent by 2023.
PCHI is working to increase access to reproductive health services in order to improve the health and well-being of Illinoisans. By reducing barriers and expanding access to care, our work will reduce by 50% unmet contraceptive needs in Illinois by 2023.
PCHI is working to dramatically improve health outcomes while reducing the need for costly and unnecessary emergency room admissions through investments in housing and services which provide stability and support for those caught in this cycle.
PCHI is working to eliminate the incidence of HIV/AIDS in Illinois and improve access to care by those living with the virus. By expanding access to care, our work will help bring the incidence of new HIV infections to a functional zero (under 100 cases per year) by 2030.
