Hispanic Health Council Centers

Research & Advocacy

Community-based research has been a core pillar for the Hispanic Health Council’s pursuit of its mission since its inception. The Hispanic Health Council conducts research and evaluation projects to improve systems, policies, and large-scale programs through an equity lens. The objective is to use community-based participatory research (CBPR) to fully engage community members in identifying health-related needs and designing needed programmatic and policy/system changes to address them.

The Hispanic Health Council is also actively engaged in system and policy advocacy, conducted to impact the many barriers to health experienced by diverse communities at the causal level.
