Commission on Social Determinants of Health - Final Report: Closing the gap in a generation: Health equity through action on the social determinants of health.  Social justice is a matter of life and death.  It affects the way people live, their consequent chance of illness, and their risk of premature death.  We watch in wonder as life expectancy and good health continue to increase in parts of the world and in alarm as they fail to improve in others. Link

Health Literacy

To support community efforts in the goal of ending health disparities and promoting health equity, the Office of Minority Health has released the new NPA Toolkit for Community Action.  Through this toolkit, community members will have the information and resources they need to help engage fellow citizens and local media as they spread the word about health disparities and educate others about the impact disparities have in the lives of individuals and the greater impact on society.
