California’s Office of Health Equity (OHE) was established by the California Health and Safety Code to provide a key leadership role to reduce health and mental health disparities in communities. This office prioritizes the achievement of the highest level of health and mental health for all people, with special attention focused on those who have experienced socioeconomic disadvantage and historical injustice, through cross-sector partnerships and the alignment of state resources, policies, and programs. The California Reducing Disparities Project is a statewide policy initiative led by OHE to identify solutions for historically underserved communities in the area of behavioral health. In this webinar, speakers will discuss the policy levers and partnerships that support the California Office of Health Equity and their California Reducing Disparities Project as well as the strategies, resources, and tools implemented through the California Reducing Disparities Project to promote health equity in the state of California.

The Federal Interagency Health Equity Team (FIHET) is a group of 12 federal agencies convened under the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA). The NPA is a national movement with the mission to improve the effectiveness of programs that target the elimination of health disparities through coordination of leaders, partners, and stakeholders that are committed to action. The FIHET provides a forum for federal agencies to increase dialog between traditionally siloed programs in ways that enhance cross-agency coordination, maximally leverage existing resources, and increase the impact of federal resources on conditions within communities.
The Association for State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) is the national nonprofit organization representing public health agencies in the United States, the U.S. Territories, and the District of Columbia, and over 100,000 public health professionals these agencies employ. ASTHO members, the chief health officials of these jurisdictions, formulate and influence sound public health policy and ensure excellence in state-based public health practice. ASTHO's primary function is to track, evaluate, and advise members on the impact and formation of public or private health policy which may affect them and to provide them with guidance and technical assistance on improving the nation's health.
