About the Alliance

Children’s Health Alliance of Wisconsin advocates for families and actively works to create programs to build healthier communities. As Wisconsin’s voice for children’s health, our work is guided by national and statewide priorities defined by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Our work is carried out in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Health Services and the Alliance Advisory Board.

Whether it’s preventing injuries or improving access to care, the Alliance works to change systems, influence policy and implement best practices to help children grow to their full potential.

Our Commitment to Inclusion, Diversity and Equity

At the Alliance our mission is to ensure Wisconsin children are healthy, safe and able to thrive. As Wisconsin’s voice for children’s health we are an advocate for families and a catalyst for creating healthier communities. The Alliance is dedicated to the values of inclusion, diversity and equity (ID&E) in all our work. We are working to formalize our commitment to these values with support of both our advisory board and staff. We are engaged with Children’s Wisconsin in a broader system wide ID&E journey.

The Alliance is taking steps to ensure that all of our actions and work reflect our commitment. The communities we serve across the state are increasingly diverse and we are dedicated to creating programs with partners that are built on a foundation of inclusivity, diversity in perspective and equity and will not contribute to racism and division.

The Alliance and our Advisory Board believe that all kids and families should have equitable access to health care. We are a community that will not tolerate acts of racism or discrimination of any kind. We will treat each other with courtesy and respect, encourage purposeful dialogue and assume positive intent in all interactions. We also will nurture an inclusive and diverse environment that advances equity, innovation and accountability.
