Connections between racism and health: Private sector organizations
December 7, 2021
To ensure that Ohio is a healthy and economically vibrant state, Ohioans must work collaboratively across the public and private sectors to address the complex barriers facing communities experiencing worse health outcomes. Ohioans of color, in particular, continue to face barriers to good health and well-being that are rooted in racism and centuries of unjust practices. However, improvement is possible and there are many actions private sector organizations can take to support the health of every Ohioan.
This fact sheet, the second in a series of three, outlines actions private sector partners can take to support the health and well-being of Ohioans of color and move Ohio toward a more economically vibrant and healthy future. The first fact sheet provided action steps for state and local policymakers, and the final fact sheet focuses on community groups and individuals.
