The LA40by2030 vision is to improve the health outcomes and quality of life for Louisiana children and families over this decade.

ABOUT OUR BOLD VISION:

Historically, Louisiana has struggled to improve outcomes in education, incarceration, and health.  Even prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our state frequently ranked between 49th and 50th in annual overall state health outcomes. In direct response to these startling statistics, the Louisiana Center for Health Equity (LCHE) and partners launched LA40by2030 in 2020, a collaborative effort to improve Louisiana’s health ranking to 40th by the year 2030. The LA40by2030 vision is to improve the health outcomes and quality of life for Louisiana children and families over this decade. In furtherance of our goal, LCHE has developed a Health Equity Framework for LA40by2030 that incorporates the social determinants of health domains. This innovative and bold vision was first announced at the 2020 Health Summit: Advancing Health Equity for Children and Families. As an outgrowth of the summit, LCHE published a written report.

This report detailed four recommendations for policies to improve health outcomes for women, children, and families in the state of Louisiana.

  • Set a state minimum wage higher than the federal minimum wage

  • Implement trauma-informed approaches and services for Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)

  • Establish a state-run entity to coordinate a systematic approach to women’s health, such as an Office on Women’s Health

  • Prioritize and adopt key America’s Health Rankings’ health measures as policy

 

The recent passage of legislation to create the Louisiana Office on Women’s Health and the Student Behavior, Mental Health and Discipline Task Force are significant steps toward our goal. To learn more about our Bold Vision read the reports below:
