HEALTH EQUITY AND RACIAL JUSTICE


The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) has a rich history of working on social and environmental factors that impact people's health outcomes. In 2006, Boston became the nation's first city to address racial and ethnic disparities in healthcare. Furthering its commitment to improving the health of communities of color, BPHC has had an office devoted to advancing racial justice and health equity for over ten years. BPHC re-launched the Office of Health Equity in 2016 to lead BPHC in implementing everyday practices and principles that will increase the opportunity for every individual in Boston to achieve their best health.
