“Health” comprises much more than physical or mental health, and is dynamically affected by our complex history of federal and local policies. In order to promote and facilitate health equity, the National Academies, under direction of the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health, convened a committee of experts to identify policies contributing to health inequity and determine recommendations for action. Their findings resulted in 13 specific recommendations to promote health equity, including establishing performance standards and maintaining representative data collection.
For main highlights from this group’s findings, review the “Federal Policy to Advance Racial, Ethnic, and Tribal Health Equity” consensus report here, or visit this site for the full report.
