Health Equity Resource Guide and Assessment Tool

NFPRHA aims to assist family planning providers in identifying the work that is needed within their agency to address systemic barriers to care and advance health equity. 

Accompanying the resource guide is an assessment tool that can support family planning providers as they conduct community needs assessments, program design and data collection, and seek to strengthen partnerships between the family planning network and collaborative organizations in their communities. NFPRHA recognizes that patients’ health care experiences vary over time and by provider and advancing health equity can be addressed at multiple levels. Each agency should decide where and how to focus. Involving and taking the lead from the experience, perspective, interests, and needs of community members is essential to all efforts related to advancing sexual and reproductive health equity.
