In our coordinated effort to improve health and increase equity in our communities, Olympic Community of Health (OCH) invites partners to participate in this equity survey. The survey was available on paper during the OCH NCC meetings in February 2019 and will be available online until May 31. OCH will compile and share results with partners at convenings and online.
Equity is achieved when everyone has access to the opportunities necessary to satisfy their essential needs, advance their well-being and achieve their full potential. Policies that promote equity recognize that many groups within society have not had access to opportunity in equal ways. Equity is happening when we see even outcomes across communities, including markers like race, gender, ability, sex orientation, and income.
