Health inequities, which are rooted in unjust social and economic inequities, are pervasive and persistent in the state. While the health care sector does not hold sole responsibility for eliminating health inequities, it can leverage its influence through action in collaboration with partners and a long-term commitment to change. 

United States of Care convened a group of health care system and payer CEOs interested in exploring a shared initiative to reduce health inequities in Minnesota.
 
The resulting report, summary and framework set a vision for the role health care can play in eliminating health inequities and describes next steps to move the framework into action.
