Health Equity Technical Advisory Committee

Members of the Health Equity Technical Advisory Committee m(Health Equity TAC) provide experience and professional perspectives related to health equity with a focus on language access, health literacy, hard-to-reach populations, cultural sensitivity, and other general access to coverage issues.

The Health Equity TAC was instrumental in developing the following equity statement, which was adopted unanimously by the Exchange Board:

Equity is a fundamental pillar to the society we seek to build. The process of advancing toward equity will be disruptive and demands vigilance, dismantling deeply entrenched systems of privilege and oppression. We must focus our efforts on people and places where needs are greatest, especially communities of color, and go beyond remedying a particular inequity to address all determinants of health.

Our goal is that all Washingtonians have full and equal access to opportunities, power and resources to achieve their full potential.
