The New Hampshire Health & Equity Partnership (H&EP) is a public-private collaborative of philanthropic organizations, public health agencies, community based organizations, advocates and others concerned with health equity. The Partnership considers health equity within the broad framework of social determinants such as education, housing, employment, environment, and other factors that influence health status and access to quality health care for individuals and communities. By addressing health disparities at their source we will improve health and health care for minority communities and for the general population statewide.

Newly interested individuals and organizations are encouraged to Get Involved!

The Plan

The Partnership is guided in its work by the Plan to Address Health Disparities and Promote Health Equity in New Hampshire. The goal of the plan is to define statewide priorities and prepare recommendations to advance health equity for NH’s racial, ethnic, and linguistic minority communities.
