Within health care settings, there is a renewed focus on efforts to advance health equity. Furthermore, there is strong evidence of a commitment to ensure equitable practices are tied to the core work of improving quality and advancing health equity. To support Wisconsin hospitals and health systems starting from different points on their journey to strengthen health equity, WHA has consolidated a suite of tools and resources to help members in their efforts to advance health equity in their communities.
