Transcript of Health Equity
Data Driving Equity
Practices for Advancing Health Equity
A population-based difference in health outcomes.
When every person has the opportunity to realize their health potential - the highest level of health possible for that person - without limits imposed by structural inequities.
A health disparity based in inequitable, socially-determined circumstances.
Structures or systems of society - such as finance, housing, transportation, education, social opportunities, etc. - that are structured in such a way that they
benefit one population unfairly
(whether intended or not).
The normalization of an array of dynamics -- historical, cultural, institutional and interpersonal -- that routinely advantage white people while producing cumulative and chronic adverse outcomes for people of color and American Indians.
Public health is what we, as a
assure the conditions in which people can be healthy. -IOM
Because health inequities are socially-determined,
change is possible
Health equity means achieving the conditions in which all people have the opportunity to attain their highest possible level of health.
Ask: What creates health?
Persons with mental
Persons with disabilities
Health Inequity: Race
Health inequities in Minnesota are significant and persistent, especially by race:
In Minnesota, an African American or American Indian infant has
more than twice
the chance of dying in the first year of life as a white infant.

"Back of the Envelope" Conceptual Model
If we are not all healthy together,
none of us is as healthy as
we could be.

...but there's more to this story than race.
Policy, Systems, and Environment
Health equity is a feature not of
Access to economic, education, and political opportunities.
The capacity to make decisions and affect change for themselves, their families, and their communities.
Social and environmental safety in the places they live, learn, work, worship, and play.
Culturally-competent and appropriate health care when the need arises.
For healthy outcomes of persons to be possible, systems need to be in place to assure every person has:
Clinical Setting Inequities: LGBTQ
1:6 LGBTQ persons in Minnesota report discrimination by a health care provider because of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
: 32% reported discrimination
Includes: administrative or clinical staff such as a front desk, scheduling, or security person
Supporting Medical Staff
: 43% reported discrimination
Includes: nurse, paramedic, medical assistant, or laboratory person
Primary Care Provider
: 45% reported discrimination
Includes: doctor, dentist, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, or pharmacist
Mental Health Care Provider
: 29% reported discrimination
Includes: psychiatrist, counselor, therapist, or social worker
4 keys to successful use of data for addressing health inequities:
Making the data useful: analysis, interpretation, and application
Dissemination of results
Infant Mortality Rates
Notice a trend?
"Redlining was used across the US from 1930s - 1970s. The practice of arbitrarily denying or limiting financial services to specific neighborhoods, generally because of its residents are people of color or are poor."
= Still Desirable
... "but that's Minneapolis..."
Policies, Systems, and Environments
Top-down and bottom-up are equally vital.
"I believe that the history of public health might well be written as a record of successive redefinings of the unacceptable."
--Geoffrey Vickers, Harvard School of Public Health, 1958
Tobacco Use and Exposure
Health in All Policies Approach
..."again, that's Minneapolis..."
Central Corridor Light Rail - Green Line
Master Pedestrian Plan
Master Bicycle Plan
Where to locate new roads
Public transit options in rural MN
Freeway exit locations
Populations of Color
Socio-economic Status (SES)
Designing for Chronic Disease Prevention
"Designing transportation policy with health equity
considerations can promote health and economic mobility."

investment of resources
creating meaningful indicators
sharing of resources
ensuring usability and accessibility to stakeholders
legal considers for data privacy
Changes in systems and processes for data collection, analysis, and dissemination:
e.g. Women have more breast cancer than men.
(i.e. persistent health disparities that cannot be explained by bio-genetic factors.)
