Integrating Health Equity into Your Grants and RFPs

Health inequities exist among groups based on gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, education, income, disability, and geographic location. In addition, the burden of health inequities constitutes a huge financial and social cost to our nation in terms of the quality and quantity of life. Health organizations are committed to the promotion of health equity and the elimination of health inequities, and are in alignment with the World Health Organization's (WHO) position that "the objective of good health is…twofold: the best attainable average level – goodness– and the smallest feasible differences among individuals and groups – fairness1. Health inequities are reflected by disproportionately high rates of disease, premature death and a lower quality of life. Health inequities are avoidable and state, federal, and locally-funded activities play a key role in helping to solve this problem. One way of achieving health equity is ensuring that all public health activities and programs are integrated by specifically including health equity language and activities into grants and RFPs.
