What is health equity?
“Health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy. This requires removing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including powerlessness and lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and health care.”

The Health Equity Hub is a collaborative project of the Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH) Group of the UW Population Health Institute and the Wisconsin Department of Health Services Tobacco Prevention and Control Program (TPCP).
