Although April 5 was observed as Health Equity Day, it’s not too late to reflect on the need to achieve health equity and to take the Health Equity Pledge.  An inclusive health and social system that treats people equitably and creates conditions in which all people can achieve optimal health reflects an educated society and a strong economy.
