Ward Infinity aims to radically reduce health disparities through the creation of community-driven solutions. We partner with change agents in Washington, D.C.'s most underserved communities, Wards 7 and 8, to develop innovative solutions that address social determinants of health.
Health disparities increase medical costs by $77 billion and indirect costs by $83 billion each year. Our strategy distributes resources to increase health and vitality and reduce costs.
Vulnerable communities are often not consulted on changes that affect their quality of life. Our approach empowers residents to shape changes in their community.
As we've seen with the COVID vaccine roll-out, trust between patients & providers either impedes or encourages healthcare service use. Our process listens and responds to community needs.
