Moving into Equity for Public Health

This guide is intended for health departments as they continue their journey to become equity-focused organizations, both in awareness and practice. Recognizing that public health departments and individuals have different starting points and destinations, this tool hopes to support movement in a variety of ways, including:

  • Move people to be dissatisfied with the status quo and be willing to step into new practices and take risks.
  • Be useful in both rural and urban settings, for communities that are changing rapidly and those that are not.
  • Encourage respect and openness to different stories among all those involved.
  • Lead to more shared power and decision making with communities.
  • Encourage true transformation and honor the deep internal and personal work required.

Many definitions of health equity exist, and this guide will provide public health departments and practitioners with tangible strategies to advance the equity work occurring in communities.
