Advancing Health Equity: Minority Health Month

 

??????????????????????????????

National Minority Health Month

Health Disparity

The theme this year, to help raise public awareness about health and health care disparities is “30 Years of Advancing Health Equity: The Heckler Report, A Force for Ending Health Disparities in America”.

The Heckler Report, published in 1985, focused on elimination of health disparities in racial and ethnic groups considered to be minorities. Health equity was/is to be the end result or the goal.

Health Equity: Action Taken

Some progress has been made toward health equity. However, the progress in elimination health disparities among racial and ethnic groups has been very slow, and disparities continue to exist today. Legislative and policy actions include the ACA (Affordable Care Act) and the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities.
