Short Description
This initiative allows culturally competent and linguistically appropriate services to be offered where, and when clients need them. Immediate adjustments can be made to the outreach plan based on input from clients, disease outbreaks, and special community events. The aim of this funding is to reduce health disparities and health inequities. Health equity exists when all people have the opportunity to thrive and no one is limited in achieving comprehensive health and wellness because of their social position or any other social factors/determinants of health such as income, education, race/ethnicity, sexual identity, and disability.
