What is MACC?

The Multiethnic Advocates for Cultural Competence (MACC) is a statewide nonprofit membership agency aimed at the reduction of health disparities in Ohio’s health systems. Ohio faces a number of disparate health outcomes that are the result of a lack of knowledge and understanding about the diverse racial and ethnic populations being served. MACC is equipping providers and systems with the necessary tools and best practices to enhance their delivery of care.

Our Vision

Ohio’s health care system actively provides culturally competent practices and interventions that will lead to optimal outcomes for individuals who seek services provided by these systems in the State of Ohio.

Our Mission

To enhance the quality of care in Ohio’s health care system and to incorporate culturally competent models of practice into the systems and organizations that provide services to Ohio’s diverse populations.
