Health Equity is achieved when every person in every community has the opportunity to attain good health and when no one’s health is diminished due to the social conditions in which they live and work.  Over a lifetime, inequitable access to the foundations of good health can make a person’s elder years less healthy. 

The AFPHS initiative is designed to create partnerships among and between public health agencies and other health and services sectors to advance health equity across the life span.
