Why Equity Matters

Across the nation, gaps in health are large, persistent and
increasing—many of them caused by barriers set up at all levels of our
society. After all, it's hard to be healthy without access to good jobs
and schools, and safe, affordable homes. Health equity means increasing
opportunities for everyone to live the healthiest life possible, no
matter who we are, where we live, or how much money we make.
