Mapping Health Equity: New Tools for States

Health Equity Solutions

On Thursday, February 22, State Health and Value Strategies hosted a webinar to introduce two new interactive tools: the Health Equity Impact Tool (the Impact Tool) and the Health Equity Policy Tool (the Policy Tool). The Impact Tool is a multi-part online evaluation for state agencies to examine their equity work at a high level while the Policy Tool is a framework for reviewing and evaluating the impact on equity of current or proposed policies. During the webinar, experts from Health Equity Solutions reviewed how and why the tools were created and how to use the tools to understand the scope of equity work for a state agency. The webinar also provided an overview of what to expect when completing the tools and how to leverage findings to develop goals and strengthen equity-focused policies and practices.
