Building Equity Into Safer States

As a thought leader providing guidance to state health departments, Safe States disseminates the most recent data and strategies that promote diversity, equity, and inclusion across the IVP field. This resource is intended to serve as a guide to incorporate a health equity lens into the IVP “Core Components” for state health departments as defined in Building Safer States, 2013 Edition. Building Safer States defines and expands on a set of essential “core components” – foundational elements of a model state-level IVP Program. This resource document was developed with contributions from the Anti-Racism and Health Equity Work Group, a group comprised of Safe States members with cross-sector backgrounds in IVP programs, policy strategies, epidemiology, research, evaluation, and coalition building.
