New Mexico Health Equity Environmental Scan
Achieving health equity requires the elimination of health and healthcare disparities. Many organizations have prioritized health equity and the social determinants of health (SDoH) in the public and private sectors.
Our environmental scan provides a snapshot of what other organizations in New Mexico are doing to reduce disparities. Through literature reviews and key contact interviews we’ve compiled a list of opportunities and programs that are taking place in New Mexico to advance equity.
