The COVID-19 pandemic has shone a harsh spotlight on the racial and ethnic disparities in patient experiences and outcomes that exist in our healthcare system. While researchers have long been aware of health disparities affecting historically underserved communities for many noncommunicable diseases such as breast cancer, diabetes and asthma, the pandemic has brought inequities of all kinds into mainstream consciousness.
MHQP is uniquely positioned to help advance all aspects of the health equity agenda through shared measurement and collective action. While we understand that this issue is deeply-rooted in longstanding and systemic biases, we are determined to systematically move towards health equity and justice, and to eradicate inequities in health outcomes and experiences, so that all patients have an equal opportunity to be as healthy as possible.
