New Healthy People 2030 Resources to Advance Health Equity

As Healthy People has evolved over the decades to reflect the most current science and address the latest public health priorities, it has strengthened its focus on health equity. Healthy People 2030 has a variety of resources to help individuals, organizations, and communities committed to eliminating health disparities and advancing health equity.

Healthy People, an initiative of the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, identifies public health priorities to help individuals, organizations, and communities across the United States improve health and well-being. Healthy People 2030, the initiative’s fifth iteration, builds on knowledge gained over the first four decades. 

Check out all of Healthy People 2030's health equity-related resources. You’ll find all of these resources on the new Health Equity in Healthy People 2030 webpage. You can check out the definitions for “health equity” and “health disparities” and read the recent environmental scan on how health equity and health disparities are defined and communicated within the field of public health. In addition, the initiative has created a new graphic that highlights all the ways you can leverage Healthy People 2030 to advance health equity — “the attainment of the highest level of health for all people.” Also learn more about key concepts closely tied to health equity, including health literacy and social determinants of health.
