Health Equity

Health Equity is the condition under which individuals are provided the resources they need in order to have access to the same opportunities for health, as the general population. 

Equity accounts for systematic inequalities, meaning the distribution of resources provides more for those who need it most. Achieving health equity in rural communities requires assessment, collaboration, education, and targeted activities.

This collection reflects resources created to increase the understanding of health equity, assess needs in communities, and develop strategies to improve access and health outcomes for all.
