PHPDA is pleased to present our 2022-2026 Strategic Framework,
inspired by the imperative to
Build Momentum For Change
Looking forward as our 2019-2021 Strategic Plan ended, we focused on how we can: 1) increase our impact on health equity and 2) engage in creating a new normal rather than returning to a normal that failed to deliver equitable access to the resources needed to lead healthy lives.
Building on public resource stewardship and community-focused grantmaking, we believe that:
- PHPDA must take a systemic and partnership approach to
address inequities that are built into health and social systems.
- Our greatest strength lies in the relationships we’ve built with
others on the frontlines in service to those marginalized. We need
to strengthen those existing relationships and build new ones.
- PHPDA must share the learnings from community-designed
programs addressing inequitable access to health resources into
policy-making and systemic change discussions.
Recognizing that our work ahead can only proceed at the speed of trust between us and the communities we serve, we opted to
create a framework that emphasizes long-range goals and strategies rather than a more traditional plan that emphasizes achievement of deliverables strictly within established timeframes.
PHPDA launched our strategic planning process in August of 2021 with the creation of the Strategic Plan Work Group, comprised of Governing Council members, Strategic Advisors, and Staff. Bob Cook graciously agreed to chair and Marc Provence stepped up to facilitate.
In a process that relied on the collective experience and wisdom of the Work Group, Governing Council, Staff, and consultants, we:
- Refreshed Vision, Mission, and Values Statements
- Imagined our future desired state
- Analyzed gaps between current work and future desired state
- Brainstormed goals and strategies to bridge the gaps
- Consulted with experts to reality-check and craft pathways
Through this rigorous process, we learned what we do well, what could use improvement, and what we weren’t doing. Our leadership wants PHPDA to increase our impact in addressing health inequity because the problems we are facing continue to grow. Returning to the pre-pandemic norm is not an option and neither is only continuing to do the same things that we have been doing.
