4 Benefits of Achieving Health Equity

Whether you know what they are or not health disparities affect us all:

“Poor health impacts a student’s ability to pay attention in class and a worker’s ability to perform well at his job. It hurts our country’s ability to reach its potential and be competitive in the global marketplace.”

The good news: everyone benefits when health disparities are eliminated and health equity becomes a reality. Here are four ways:

• Financial costs are greatly diminished.
• Healthy children can grow into productive adults.
• Healthy adults boost workforce capacity and capability.
• “American” values of caring for one another are honored.
