Health Equity

Achieving health equity and eliminating health-related disparities are essential work of the health professions. Nursing has the capacity to make a significant impact. Barriers to health equity – including social, economic, demographic and structural – must be overcome so all populations have access and opportunity to be healthy. Small-scale interventions can provide relief, but engineering broad social and political reform to erase health inequities is the ultimate goal.
