Team Up, Take Action: Partnering for Health Equality

TUTA 2017

New Hampshire Public Health Association's (NHPHA) Annual Fall Event presented by NHPHA, VtPHA and Dartmouth-Hitchcock

Team Up, Take Action: Partnering for Health EquityJoin your peers and colleagues for a thorough and thoughtful day exploring the many factors that either enable or interfere with addressing conditions leading to health inequity. Presenters and breakout sessions will delve into identifying key levers such as policy, system, and environmental changes, types of partnerships and relationships, and other elements needed to be successful in advancing health equity. By targeting our work to produce the greatest health benefits for disadvantaged groups, ultimately our entire communities benefit.

Health equity means that everyone has the chance to be as healthy as possible. Health equity means reducing and eliminating disparities in health and its determinants that adversely affect excluded or marginalized groups. Health equity is inextricably linked with opportunity. It requires addressing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including powerlessness and lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and health care. Health equity is fundamental to building a vibrant society because of its practical, economic, and civic implications and impact on individuals living a good life.
