Office of Minority Health and Equity

Vision and Mission

The vision of the Nevada Office of Minority Health and Equity (NOMHE) is to achieve optimal levels of health and wellness for all minority groups and marginalized communities across the state.

NOMHE’s mission is to avoid and/or reverse disproportionately experienced, health-related disparities among the state’s most vulnerable, high-risk populations.

    COVID-19 Dashboard

    The Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Analytics dashboard serves as the state’s resource on COVID-19 statistics representing its impact on its 3.149 million residents. In response to COVID-19’s disproportionate impact on the state’s vulnerable populations, the NOMHE webpage offers a direct link to the dashboard’s racially stratified reporting options.
