Reducing and Eliminating Health Inequities

Health inequities based on educational attainment, gender, sexual orientation, immigration status, disability status, income status, food security status, housing status, and rural/urban geographic areas of residence are linked to unmet needs for social, medical, and public health services. Research in this S4A priority area identifies innovative strategies to align and coordinate delivery and financing systems for medical care, social services, and public health and prevention services to reduce health inequities over the life course.
