Health Equity Highlight Reel | Health Equity Approaches to Prevention
Human rights and public health issues are impacting our communities from every angle. They’re impacting the way we work, the way we feel, the way we treat each other and the way we move through the world.
As Audre Lorde said decades ago, “There is no thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.”
As violence prevention practitioners, we need to be listening. We can’t prevent sexual violence in a vacuum and expect anything to change.
The CDC is clear that health equity is the way forward, that we must acknowledge and work to address differences in socially determined circumstances to improve whole person health. For those of us trying to do this work – equity is a big word.
There is no formula for health equity, no standardized curricula, no checkboxes. But there are powerful resources and examples in the field that we can look to for inspiration and guidance.
For this episode of PreventConnect, we combed through hours of web conferences and resource to find excerpts and examples of health equity in the field and hopefully tell a story on how to translate an academic term into real life practices and make a difference in the communities we serve.
