As today marks Juneteenth, we recognize that COVID-19 is not the only pandemic our world faces.
Like millions around the world, HPIC mourns acts of violence, racism, social injustice and the many factors that contribute to social inequities, including health.
Respect, dignity, compassion, caring, partnership and service without discrimination are some of our values, and why we are here.
Our mission is to improve health and health care worldwide.
We acknowledge that addressing racism requires from us lifelong commitment and vigilance.
HPIC continues to learn about how to advance equity in our work and in our world. We see that our goal of improving health worldwide is intrinsically dependent on dismantling racism and advancing equity and we also hope that we are part of the solution to effect transformation.
