HEALTH EQUITY STARTER KIT

About the Starter Kit

Health Outreach Partners (HOP) believes health is a human right. We recognize that efforts to advance health equity mean highlighting injustices and standing up for equal access so that people can lead healthy and dignified lives. To best support health centers who are committed to serving vulnerable and underserved populations, HOP created the Health Equity Starter Kit. The Starter Kit contains resources related to health equity all in one place. This resource will support you in better understanding health equity as a broader framework to explain and address structural factors, social determinants of health, and health disparities. The Starter Kit includes a collection of innovative strategies, as well as examples of data and measures to track and evaluate health equity efforts.
