Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Health

Equity, Diversity and Inclusion in Health

More broadly, as an academic medical center that is part of the University of California, we are committed to caring for our community — all of our community — through new science, new medicines and new cures. Through equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives, we address drivers within our health system and across our community that contribute to public health disparities and inequities. This work is, thus, important to our core mission of caring for our community. Equity, diversity and inclusion are core elements to dismantling structural racism and developing a framework for a more just community. At UC San Diego Health, this means a culture rooted in integrity and respect, where all of our physicians, staff and patients can thrive. What Have We Done So Far?

Health disparities are closely linked to economic, social and environmental disadvantages that are often driven by structural and institutional racism. Health equity exists when everyone, regardless of their race, ethnicity or socioeconomic background, has a fair and just opportunity for wellness and health. The principles of health equity at UC San Diego Health aim to reduce, and ultimately eliminate, health disparities in our community and their root causes, including social determinants of health. Social determinants of health are non-medical factors (such as a person’s environment, employment and education) that influence a person’s health.
