Health Disparities and Strategies Reports
Since 2011, the CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Reports (CHDIR) and the Strategies for Reducing Health Disparities reports have highlighted effective public health programs that have reduced disparities.
The programs described in Strategies for Reducing Health Disparities—Selected CDC-Sponsored Interventions, United States, 2016 are examples of CDC-sponsored initiatives that address health disparities with the goal of advancing health equity.
This report includes selected interventions that reflect effective public health actions supported by CDC that are proven effective or show promise for reducing health disparities at the local or national levels.
The CHDIR, 2013 is the second consolidated assessment that highlights health disparities and inequalities across a wide range of diseases, behavioral risk factors, environmental exposures, social determinants, and health-care access.
The CHDIR, 2011 is the first in a series of periodic, consolidated assessments that highlight health disparities by sex, race, and ethnicity, income, education, disability status and other social characteristics in the U.S.
