Health Equity Promotion

Health equity means that all people can reach their full health potential and should not be disadvantaged from attaining it because of socially determined circumstances.  These circumstances include social and economic status, social class, racism, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation and others.  We promote health equity in the WRHA and in partnership with many others.
