Eliminating Racial and Ethnic Disparities


Equity of Care Image


Recently the American College of Healthcare Executives, American Hospital Association, Association of American Medical Colleges, Catholic Health Association of the United States, and National Association of Public Hospitals and Health Systems stood together in a call to action to eliminate health care disparities. Our goals are to increase the collection of race, ethnicity and language preference data; increase cultural competency training for clinicians and support staff; and increase diversity in governance and management.

Addressing disparities is no longer just about morality, ethics and social justice: It is essential for performance excellence and improved community health.
