Health Equity

How can we advance health? How can we improve health at a more rapid rate for people who are disproportionately suffering poorer health outcomes? How can we bring a lens of health equity to the decisions we make?


In 2015, the Wisconsin Partnership Program began strategic discussions regarding how to explicitly focus on issues of health equity to explore answers to these questions and to better understand how to address health disparities and advance health equity in order to positively affect the health of the people of Wisconsin.


In September 2016, the Wisconsin Partnership Program hosted the conference Advancing Health Equity. The day-long conference was a first step in the Wisconsin Partnership Program’s journey in moving forward with efforts to further incorporate health equity as a crucial component of its vision and framework for future investments.


This web page currently features conference materials, including a link to the conference presentations, summary document and other helpful resources.


Please visit this site again as we will continue to update it as the Wisconsin Partnership Program shapes and launches its strategy to address health equity head-on, in collaboration with partners and communities throughout the state.
