The Health Equity Committee is established by the Oregon Health Policy Board (OHPB). The purpose of the committee is to coordinate and develop policy that proactively promotes the elimination of health disparities and the achievement of health equity for all people in Oregon. Achieving health equity, including a healthcare workforce that reflects the demographics of the communities it serves, is a priority for the OHPB, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) and the Governor. The Health Equity Committee will be responsible for reviewing health policy and leading efforts to develop best-practice policies which improve health equity.
