Achieving Health Equity

HEALTH EQUITY MEANS THAT EVERY PERSON HAS AN OPPORTUNITY TO ACHIEVE OPTIMAL HEALTH REGARDLESS OF: • THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN • LEVEL OF EDUCATION • GENDER IDENTITY • SEXUAL ORIENTATION • THE JOB THEY HAVE • THE NEIGHBORHOOD THEY LIVE IN • WHETHER OR NOT THEY HAVE A DISABILITY

Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) are conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. Healthy People 2030 uses a place-based framework that outlines five key areas of SDOH:

  1. Healthcare access and quality
  2. Education access and quality
  3. Social and community context
  4. Economic stability
  5. Neighborhood and built environment

Great Plains QIN will work within healthcare communities to increase opportunities for everyone to live the healthiest life possible, no matter who we are, where we live, or how much money we make. Access resources and training events below.
