In 2018, a steering committee of our local leaders convened to focus on disparities in health and to create a plan to achieve health equity by 2027 through systems change.
Health equity exists when everyone has access to the conditions needed for optimal health and well-being.
The Destination 2027 Steering Committee completed its process in December 2018. In the A Decade of Difference: Destination 2027 Steering Committee Report, the steering committee concludes:
Now is the time for Arlington to adopt a health equity policy, install an oversight entity, and apply equity considerations in decision making across all sectors to become the community it aspires to be – to achieve health equity for all of Arlington.
