The movement toward health equity

Although the health care industry has long been aware of systemic inequities, real progress on eliminating them has been slow. There are still enormous health disparities linked to factors such as race, income, ethnicity, and location.

In the past several years, a more urgent conversation about equity has been brought to the national stage by the Black Lives Matter movement and the COVID-19 pandemic’s disproportionate effects on low-income populations and people of color. This focus creates a unique opportunity for change as more health care stakeholders agree the status quo isn’t working.
