In response to the crises of 2020, the foundation is dedicating its next funding cycle exclusively to research that seeks to improve our understanding of these extraordinary times. The severe consequences of the Covid19-pandemic, including its economic disruptions, and the recent mass protests to combat systemic racial inequality in policing and other institutions have reaffirmed the importance of social science research examining economic, political, racial, ethnic, generational, and social inequalities relevant to public policy and social change.
The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the drivers behind care disparities - particularly for communities of color - and presents a call to action for all to address structural inequities across healthcare and scientific research. The Health Equity Innovations Fund invites proposals to support groundbreaking efforts to address healthcare disparities for historically underserved communities, with a focus on communities of color. This can yield benefits for society as a whole, laying the groundwork for more relevant and widely applicable healthcare solutions, reducing avoidable healthcare spending, and ensuring equitable health outcomes for all people.
