Health equity refers to the fair and equal distribution of health and healthcare resources, opportunities, and outcomes for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, or other social determinants of health (SDOH).
Health equity refers to an ideal state where every human has a fair and equal chance to achieve good health and well-being, and that no one is unfairly disadvantaged based on their social, economic, or demographic characteristics.
Health inequities exist when certain populations experience worse health outcomes, receive lower quality care, or have limited access to healthcare resources compared to others. These disparities are often the result of systemic barriers, such as poverty, lack of access to healthy food and safe housing, and limited access to quality healthcare services.
Addressing health equity is an important goal of healthcare reform, as it can help to reduce health disparities, improve health outcomes, and create a more just and equitable society. Efforts to achieve health equity often involve addressing the root causes of health disparities, such as poverty and social injustice, and improving access to quality healthcare services for all people.
Overall, health equity is a key factor in promoting health and well-being for all people, and is essential for creating a fair and just society. VIm’s technology supports these efforts through its mission to power affordable high-quality healthcare for everyone.
