Communities that have been racially marginalized continue to face barriers to fair and just opportunities and therefore experience poorer health outcomes. This chapter discusses how structural racism affects health equity and how collaboration with diverse partners, data, advocacy, and screening for social determinants of health can improve the health of all children. The goal of eliminating health inequities and achieving health equity must be integrated across systems, such as health, education, economy, and government, for all children and families to thrive.

Keywords: health equity, racism, structural racism
