4 HEALTHCARE GEORGIA FOUNDATION Addressing Health Disparities Health Equity in Rural Georgia D Data confirms profound disparities in health outcomes for Georgians. These differences start before birth, extend through adolescence, and continue into adulthood. We seek to reduce health disparities and achieve greater health equity among Georgians. Addressing Health Disparities is our strategic response to unequal access and outcomes among vulnerable populations. The Two Georgias Initiative is a place-based grantmaking program designed to achieve health equity among rural Georgians. This Initiative is a multi-year investment in 11 rural communities implementing local Community Health Improvement Plans comprised of innovative solutions to better health and healthcare among rural residents. This Initiative is closed and is not announcing new funding opportunities.
