The Nevada Office of Minority Health & Equity has published the statewide Health Equity Action Plan (HEAP). The HEAP aims to help government institutions, agencies, and organizations across the state integrate health equity considerations into their work, by providing a framework to examine and challenge practices that perpetuate health inequities. The HEAP includes a glossary of terms, an overview of health equity, and identifies improvement areas. It also offers policy, program, and resource recommendations to turn theory into action. The development of the HEAP was a collaborative effort, with contributions from state and local agencies, public and private health providers, academic institutions, tribal and rural partners, community-based organizations, and non-profit organizations.
