Welcome to Root Cause 


A national coalition of organizations
resolved to reverse and end the systemic
root causes of health inequities through
cross-sector partnerships.


Who We Are

Co-founded by AARP Foundation and ProMedica in 2015, The Root Cause Coalition is a nonprofit, member-driven organization comprised of more than 90 leading health systems, hospital associations, foundations, businesses, national and community nonprofits, health insurers, academic institutions and policy centers. Our common goal is to achieve health equity for every American.


Join Our Movement

The Root Cause Coalition invites your organization’s knowledge, expertise and passion to effectively address the social determinants of health. We need your help to reconstruct a healthcare system that is just, fair and can promote a higher quality of life for all.

TRCC News and Updates

The Coalition recently launched the Equity Legislation Monitor (ELM), a tool developed by our Board, Advocacy Committee and staff to identify priority issues affecting health disparities, and relevant legislation that address them. TRCC will use the ELM to continuously provide relevant information on key equity and SDoH issues throughout the year.
