As advocates for health equity, we believe all people should have the opportunity to live their healthiest lives and that we must eliminate unfair, avoidable, and unnecessary differences in health outcomes between groups. Factors such as education, housing, employment, and health insurance play an important part in health with some communities facing more obstacles than others, such as those marginalized by racism, sexism, ableism, cissexism and hetrosexism.
By amplifying marginalized voices and creating educational content and tools for deep learning and community engagement, TRANSFORM: Health Equity strives to advocate for those whom today’s health system marginalizes. We are committed to taking actions that create a world where all people can achieve equal health.

Health equity means everyone has the opportunity to live their healthiest lives. It is achieved when health disparities — which are avoidable, unnecessary, and unfair differences in health outcomes between different groups — are eliminated. Factors such as education, housing, employment, and health insurance play an important part in health with some communities facing more obstacles than others, such as those marginalized by racism, sexism, ableism, cissexism, and hetrosexism.
