The National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA), an initiative led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health, promotes cross-sector, multi-level and systems-oriented approaches for tackling health disparities. The cross-sector focus of the NPA evolves from the understanding that disparities are rooted in the inequitable distribution of underlying social determinants of health, such as education, employment, and environmental quality. The NPA envisions a path to health equity that includes changes to policies, practices and programs over time, at multiple levels of government and across different sectors, such that the promotion of health equity becomes integral to how organizations operate.
FIHET:  To support the integration of health equity in programs, policies, and practices, the Federal Interagency Health Equity Team (FIHET) has created a webinar series to create a collaborative and learning environment to highlight current practices and innovative strategies for this type of work across sectors and at different levels of government. The webinar series includes regular speakers and was launched on May 7, 2014.

  • Ongoing activities to integrate equity in policies and programs that are aligned with health or specific social determinants of health within public, private, health and non-health sector organizations.
  • Examples of policy, administrative, data and knowledge levers that have initiated, facilitated and/or supported efforts to promote equity through a featured program or policy aligned with health or specific social determinants of health.
  • Strategies, resources and tools used to promote equity through a featured program's activities/operations. Challenges, needs and opportunities to promote equity through a program.
  • Strategies for identifying opportunities to promote equity through programs or policies.
