About Us

The UCSF Child Health Equity Institute (CHEI) is a cross-campus initiative of multidisciplinary UCSF researchers, educators, advocates and health care providers advancing health equity and harnessing our expertise to improve the health and wellbeing of children and their families. To do this, we place children, families and their communities at the center of innovations to advance the policy, education, research and clinical care necessary to support children’s health. Our mission is to promote child health equity by leveraging evidence, fostering cross-sectoral partnerships and employing participatory approaches that address community-identified social, health and policy priorities.
