Health equity simply means everyone has an equal shot at living their best possible life. Health equity identifies barriers to achieving optimum health and works to eliminate them so that all people have access to the same foundational services, levels of care, and basic social determinants of health. Often, health equity is best addressed through policy that ensures that health equity is being considered when decision-makers are voting on issues that may have an impact on population health.
A Health In All Policies (HIAP) approach is how Optima EP addresses health equity with the organizations it serves, ensuring that health equity will be embedded throughout all layers of your agency. Contact us to learn more about the training and policy support we offer.Request More Info
