Choosing Health Equity

Effectively advancing health equity requires dedicated efforts to generate and apply an evidence base that reflects the impacts of racial and gender discrimination, and other intersecting structures of disadvantage.

The Choosing Health Equity tools and resources were designed to surface the numerous decision points that exist in the cycle of health care research, policy and practice — to disrupt standard processes in order to achieve a healthier, equitable, and just society.

Our goal is to support people in recognizing these decision points and in choosing health equity — whatever and whenever their role may be in this cycle.

By posing concrete questions to consider, and providing recommendations and resources for stakeholders to apply, we hope to encourage and support them in building a Health Equity Virtuous Cycle.

We encourage you to download the appropriate guide and then enter the interactive decision points tool below.
