Advancing Health Equity
Minnesota is one of the healthiest states in the country. However, a statewide assessment has found that not all Minnesotans have the same chances to be healthy. Those with less money, and populations of color and American Indians, consistently have less opportunity for health and experience worse health outcomes.
The Minnesota Legislature in 2013 directed the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) and its partners to complete a report about advancing health equity (AHE) in Minnesota.
Advancing Health Equity in Minnesota: Report to the Legislature (PDF: 2MB/130 pages)
The Advancing Health Equity in Minnesota: Report to the Legislature was submitted to the Minnesota Legislature on Friday, January 31, 2014. The report assesses Minnesota’s health disparities and recommends best practices, policies, processes, data strategies, and other steps that will promote health equity for all Minnesotans.
