Health Equity

Achieving Health Equity

 

PROBLEM: 

Health inequity is present throughout all levels of global healthcare and is reflected in disparities in length of life, quality of life, rates of disease and mortality, and access to care based upon socially determined circumstances. The global health community often lacks visibility into these issues, and therefore achieving health equity remains a challenge. 

SOLUTION: 

Our solution supports the objective and exhaustive study of broad sets of social and environmental determinants of health (SDOH) that contribute to inequity and identifies the needs of the most vulnerable members of society afflicted with chronic disease, infectious disease, and natural or man-made disasters. The Health Equity Analytic Platform is an actionable, timely, and powerful tool to target and eliminate the artificial inequities that keep us from being a healthier world. 

The platform provides a comprehensive and interactive tool allowing users to self-select SDOH and health factors to analyze from national to local levels. The various tabs include maps at multiple geospatial levels, graphs showing the change in SDOH factors over time, and charts comparing the correlation between different factors. In addition, the platform is highly customizable to meet the data visualization and aesthetic needs of any organization and user. Here, the relationship between unemployment and the population vaccinated with at least one COVID-19 dose is explored.
