The HLTH Foundation promotes diversity, equity, inclusion and opportunity in healthcare, focusing on marginalized or underserved people in three populations key to equitable and sustainable healthcare: patients, healthcare professionals and entrepreneurs. We are grateful for the support of our program sponsors and partners.
The HLTH Foundation hosts mission-driven, themed Impact Programs at the HLTH and ViVE events each year: Health Equity, Patients @HLTH, Women at HLTH and Techquity. These programs provide a platform for industry leaders to share thought-leading perspectives, make partner and client connections, gather with peers for action-oriented affinity meetups, and discover new opportunities aligned with their health equity and DE&I goals.

Techquity for Health Coalition
Convened in early 2023 by the HLTH Foundation, the Techquity for Health Coalition was established to assimilate health equity considerations into healthcare technology innovation and data practices. Its goal is to assist the industry in developing consensus around best practices, standards and metrics for equitable design and distribution of digital health tools as well as collection and analysis of health data.
