Health equity is achieving the highest level of health for all people – equality in health care so that every person is guaranteed the best care with the best health care outcomes.
The DC Primary Care Association (DCPCA) has spent more than a decade improving the primary health care system in the District and promoting a system that guarantees access to good health care for all by eliminating disparities in health outcomes for the residents of the District of Columbia. As we move from disparity-thinking to equity-thinking, our focus will remain on the uninsured and underserved, so that everyone has the opportunity and resources to live healthier lives.
As DCPCA takes a multi-faceted approach to health care reform by relating local strategies and plans to national directives, the future work of DCPCA and our members is defined by our mission around creating a healthier world, and our vision to continue to strengthen and shape health equity in the District of Columbia.
