Health Equity

Working towards health equity creates equal opportunity for everybody to be healthy.


Achieving health equity makes it possible for everyone to reach an apple.

What is Health Equity?

When every person has the opportunity to realize their health potential — the highest level of health possible for that person — without limits imposed by structural inequities. Health equity means achieving the conditions in which all people have the opportunity to attain their highest possible level of health (Minnesota Department of Health).
