Project Team

The Office of Equity and Inclusion (OEI) and Program Design and Evaluation Services (PDES) are working together on this project. OEI is providing direction for and oversight of the State of Equity Report. PDES — an applied research and evaluation unit within the Oregon Public Health Division and Multnomah County Health Department — is taking the lead on assessing availability of data at the Department of Human Services (DHS) and the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), compiling information from reports, analyzing data if needed, and summarizing data in the report.


We appreciate the invaluable input from the OMHS Community Advisory Council on the plans for this report. We also thank the following individuals within DHS/OHA for taking time from their already busy schedules to help gather information for the report:
