The Definition of Health Equity used by the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion program at Bastyr University:
Fairness and justice, focused on ensuring everyone has the opportunity to meet their full potential.
Equity takes into account disadvantage experienced by groups. Equity is distinct from equality, which refers to everyone having the same treatment without accounting for differing needs or circumstances. Inequity means lack of fairness or justice and describes differences that result from a lack of access to opportunities and resources. Inequities are avoidable and different than disparities, which are differences that do not imply unfairness.
Health equity is taking into account disadvantages experienced by groups when receiving healthcare and adjusting care as a provider to insure fair and just outcomes for patients.
