Health Equity Policy Committee

The purpose of the Health Equity Policy Committee (HEPC) is to advise Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) and raise issues to assure that policy making and program improvement processes proactively promote the elimination of health disparities and the achievement of health equity for all Oregonians. HEPC facilitates linkages among elements within health and health care systems and the diverse communities they serve.  The committee operates as a bi-directional mechanism for receiving community input and increasing understanding among community stakeholders of how to effectively engage with OEI and influence its policy actions and decisions.

New Report

Engaging Oregonians in Identifying Health Equity Policy Priorities: A Modified Policy Delphi Approach (2014) 

The Health Equity Policy Committee (HEPC) recommended that the Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) utilize a Delphi survey-like community engagement process to inform the office’s policy platform (priorities) for the next several years. Survey findings continue to inform OEI’s strategic policy decisions and actions involving: OHA policies and programs, other state and local government efforts, legislative initiatives, coalition and partnership building activities.
