Health Equity

Health equity is achieved when every person has the opportunity to “attain his or her full health potential” and no one is “disadvantaged from achieving this potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances.” Health inequities are reflected in differences in length of life; quality of life; rates of disease, disability, and death; severity of disease; and access to treatment.

Within the diverse population of Northeast Florida, there are many opportunities to connect vulnerable and underserved populations with health resources. HPCNEF works toward achieving health equity for all Floridians – regardless of neighborhood, race, ethnicity, income, education, gender, age, national origin, sexual orientation, or ability.
