We support equitable access to care.

We support solutions for improved health insurance coverage; affordable, convenient access to primary care, as well as mental health, substance use treatment, and oral care; and affordable access to medication.

We work for equitable health outcomes.

Providing access to medical care by itself will not change historic health inequities. That’s why we support meaningful progress to change the social determinants of health—the conditions outside the medical office, such as housing, transportation, and the built environment that impact health outcomes.

Special Initiative: Healthy Places NC

We invest in rural health solutions.

People living in urban North Carolina have longer life expectancies than people living in rural parts of the state. That’s why we’re investing up to half of our Health Improvement resources over 10 years in improving health and the overall quality of life in rural North Carolina.

Obesity Reduction in Halifax and Beaufort Counties

Like many parts of the state, rural Healthy Places NC communities are working to address high obesity rates and lack of access to active living resources. To assist stakeholders in Halifax and Beaufort counties, the Trust will support efforts that could include increasing recreational opportunities in underserved areas, conducting an equitable recreation master planning process, or promoting countywide recreation coordination.
