Our Mission

The mission of BCHAP is to promote the well-being of everyone in Massachusetts, with attention on populations disproportionately impacted by health inequities. We aim to reduce social and structural barriers that lead to poor health by working with communities, people and partners across the Commonwealth. BCHAP commits to transforming the systems that maintain racial and social inequities and owns its responsibility as part of the government to prevent these injustices.
