An Equity-Centered Public Health System for a Modern, Changing World
All people in Oregon deserve to live in a state where they can have the best chance at health. The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted major gaps in our public health system which showed us that new, complex health threats do not impact all Oregonians equally. It is unjust that rural communities, communities of color, tribal communities, disability communities, communities with lower income and other underserved communities experience worse effects of health problems. One key solution to this problem is to create an equity-centered public health system through public health modernization.
