Using APAC Data to Eliminate Racial Injustice
January 4, 2021
APAC is pleased to invite data requestors to apply for an optional incentive if they believe their project will identify concrete actions to eliminate health inequities stemming from historical and contemporary racial injustices and the inequitable distribution of resources and power (see Health Equity definition below). Interested requestors may complete an optional section of the APAC data request form to apply for incentives such as:
- Priority processing of requestor’s application
- Waiver of fees
- Priority production of data files
- Technical assistance from APAC analysts or other OHA staff
- Other provisions that the Director of Health Analytics may find appropriate
This option is open to requestors of either public use data sets or limited data sets. See more information on this option and how to apply here
Health Equity Definition
Oregon will have established a health system that creates health equity when all people can reach their full health potential and well-being and are not disadvantaged by their race, ethnicity, language, disability, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, social class, intersections among these communities or identities, or other socially determined circumstances.
Achieving health equity requires the ongoing collaboration of all regions and sectors of the state, including tribal governments to address:
- The equitable distribution or redistributing of resources and power; and
- Recognizing, reconciling and rectifying historical and contemporary injustices.
