Health Equity in Utah

Health Equity in Utah

Health is needed for functioning in every aspect of life. A prosperous economy needs healthy and productive individuals. The resources needed to be healthy include not only access to health care services but also health-promoting living and working conditions.

Pursuing health equity means striving for the highest possible standard of health for all people and giving attention to the needs of those communities at greatest risk for health disparities. 

Communities can experience health disparities based on socio-economic status, geographic location, race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, age, ability, gender and sexual orientation.
