Health Equity Council



In order to improve our nation’s health, we have to identify issues that make it difficult to close the gaps in health status. The Health Equity Council has identified the need for enhanced training to increase the capacity of the public health workforce to address these issues. We hope that you will join us in these efforts.

Who We Are

The Health Equity Council was established in July 2005 by NACDD to better address health equity issues within chronic disease programs throughout the U.S. Members work to foster the NACDD’s agenda for the elimination of health inequities by providing leadership, expertise, training, resources, and technical assistance. The Council strives to explain the social determinants of health more fully as well as identify actionable strategies; describe promising practices; and make recommendations to improve organizational cultural competency.
