The Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement (ARCHI)

The Atlanta Regional Collaborative for Health Improvement (ARCHI) is a growing coalition of individuals and organizations who believe that:

  1. Our region’s economic success depends on residents ability to live healthy lives
  2. Health is the result of more than access to excellent, coordinated healthcare. Health is only achieved when individuals are able to adopt active healthy lifestyles—including access to fresh food and safe places to live, exercise and play, have good paying jobs, quality housing and a range of transportation options.

WHY ARCHI?

Health is a central component of and baseline condition for:

  • Education
  • Job Access/Workforce Development
  • Economic Development

And conversely,
70% of an individual’s health and health improvement are determined not inside the four walls of a healthcare institution but by their ability to live an active life with access to good nutrition in a quality community. Put simply, “place matters”.
