A Louisville where every person and every community can enjoy hope, happiness, and wellness.
2017 Health Equity Report: Uncovering the Root Causes of Our Health
In Louisville, health equity means that everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be healthy and reach their full human potential. A person’s identities, whatever they may be, should not predict how long or how well one will live.
