Equity-Focused Efforts of Local Public Health Systems and Disparities in Community Health

equity-focused_efforts_of_local_public_health_systems.jpg Disparities in health delivery continue to act as barriers to equitable outcomes in health. Public health system efforts connect local health systems to their network and community members. Public health system capital may play a role in improving community health; however, there may be inequities in local public health system efforts across the United States. S4A investigators examine the relationship between public health system capital and the proportion of community health initiatives and action plans aimed at reducing health inequities/disparities.
