Course Description:

The World Health Organization defines health equity as the absence of avoidable, unfair, or remediable differences among groups of people, whether those groups are defined socially, economically, demographically or geographically or by other means of stratification. Additionally, health equity underscores the necessity that everyone should have the same and just opportunity to achieve optimal health.

Advancing health equity through public health activities, clinical interventions, community action or business initiatives are often challenging. This is because many do not fully understand key health equity concepts or how to operationalize them.

This course will provide participants with information to understand key health equity concepts. Participants will also learn how to use tools and techniques to apply health equity concepts to protect the health of populations, including those made vulnerable through challenging social determinants of health.
