The 21st Annual SIH/SIU Health Policy Institute will focus on the intersection of medical, legal, and policy efforts to promote health equity – the achievement that every person has the opportunity to attain his or her fullest health potential and is not restricted by social position or other socially determined circumstances. Achieving health equity is limited by health disparities. Health disparities are preventable differences in the burden of disease, injury, violence, or opportunities to achieve optimal health that are experienced by socially disadvantaged populations. Populations can be defined by factors such as race or ethnicity, gender, education, income, disability, and geographic location. Health disparities result from multiple causes including poverty, environmental threats, inadequate access to healthcare, individual and behavioral factors, and educational inequalities.



  • Identify populations suffering from health inequity
  • Define "who owns health equity"
  • Identify innovations that can be used to improve health equity in their communities
  • Determine how health policy affects health equity
  • Explain health equity policies at the local, state and national levels
