What is “Health Equity”?

Unfortunately, health inequities are a sad reality in the United States health care system. Together with the inheritable blood and bleeding disorders community and partners, the foundation is working to create an equitable health care and medical system by communicating and demanding cultural competence from medical professionals throughout the continuum of care. Additionally, the organization is prioritizing the recognition and reversal of decades of systemic barriers that have negatively impacted health outcomes and experiences.  

By committing to the cause of health equity through a variety of efforts, including but not limited to: the creation of an annual health equity summit; various research fellowships geared toward diverse populations and/or researchers; research designed to aid diverse communities, and more, the organization hopes to make a positive difference in the community’s equity and future.
