Health Equity

Abundant evidence demonstrates that our current health care system produces significant disparities in access to care and care outcomes between racial and ethnic groups. Past efforts to improve health care quality and reduce costs have often ignored — and sometimes even exacerbated — underlying inequities in health. PBGH is committed to identifying and championing health policies that ensure health equity for all people in our country.
