Health Equity: When Will We Get There?
In creating a healthy nation, achieving health equity is key. Many of our collective efforts – eliminating health disparities, improving access to care, understanding the social determinants of health – underline our march toward this objective.
But how do we get there? The TRAIN Learning Network is combining efforts across organizations to build an understanding of health equity and share successful efforts to make it a reality. Explore more than 100 healthy equity-focused learning opportunities on TRAIN , participate in discussions, and share experiences from your own background.
Training Spotlight:

This learning bundle, developed by the Public Health Foundation (PHF), provides frontline professionals with the knowledge to better understand health equity and approaches that can help address related challenges. Course topics include addressing health equity, social determinants of health, engaging across sectors, and health literacy.

Health Equity Resources
  • Building Public Health Capacity to Advance Equity from the National Collaborative for Health Equity explores governmental public health’s role in advancing health equity with racial equity as a major priority and community engagement as a central strategy.

  • The American Hospital Association (AHA) created an Equity of Care Toolkit that is a user-friendly "how-to" guide to help accelerate the elimination of health care disparities and ensure hospital leadership reflects the communities they serve.

Health disparities affect people and communities in many ways. For example, individuals living in lower income households are three times more likely to die than individuals with a household income of more than $115,000.
