Building Cross-Sector Collaborations

Organizations who work together can accomplish so much more than they can alone, and can even do more by streamlining their collective expertise and resources. As municipal governments, community anchor institutions, healthcare systems, and non-profit organizations rethink what it means to create healthy and equitable communities, the opportunity to collaborate becomes increasingly more important. The Invest Health initiative has helped diverse sectors come together for a common purpose – making communities healthier and more equitable. By working together, these stakeholders can more readily make the connection between health, equity, community development, and improving the community investment system to better channel resources that benefit all stakeholders.
