Health Equity Resources

For too many of us, the prospects for good health are limited by where we live, how much money we make, or discrimination we face.

We all benefit when everyone has a fair shot at access to good jobs with fair pay, good schools, affordable housing, safe neighborhoods, and quality medical care. This is health equity—when we all have the basics to be as healthy as possible.

State Health and Value Strategies (SHVS) developed this resource page to serve as an accessible one-stop source of information on health equity for states.

If you have materials you are willing to share with other states through this page, please contact SHVSTO SEE A LIST OF SHVS-SPECIFIC RESOURCES, CLICK HERE
