Language and Disability Access

Advancing Health Equity for all Oregonians

To advance health equity, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) established a strategic goal to eliminate health inequities by 2030. A critical component to meeting this goal is ensuring meaningful access to services for everyone in Oregon, regardless of their language and ability levels. Barriers to language and disability access:

  • Affect individual autonomy and decision making. 
  • Create disparities in health care.
  • Have created systemic inequities throughout the United States.
