As Healthy People has evolved over the decades to reflect the most current science and address the latest public health priorities, it has strengthened its focus on health equity. That’s why Healthy People 2030 has a variety of resources to help individuals, organizations, and communities committed to eliminating health disparities and advancing health equity.
Check out all of our health equity-related resources today! You’ll find all of these resources on the new Health Equity in Healthy People 2030 webpage. You can check out our definitions for “health equity” and “health disparities” and read our recent environmental scan on how health equity and health disparities are defined and communicated within the field of public health. In addition, we’ve created a new graphic that highlights all the ways you can leverage Healthy People 2030 to advance health equity — “the attainment of the highest level of health for all people.” Also learn more about key concepts closely tied to health equity, including health literacy and social determinants of health.
