Deploying Public Health Law to Advance Equity
Public health practitioners are at a critical point in recognizing the extent of health inequities in our society. Indeed, this recognition has led not only to declarations of racism as a “serious threat to the public’s health,” but also to the examination of public health’s role in transforming the systems and structures that can undermine the health and well-being of all people. These systems and structures shape the economic, social, environmental, and other conditions in which most people live, and they arise directly or indirectly from laws and policies. Law can be a powerful influence on health, and it is arguably a determinant of health and health equity.

In this Web Forum, the CDC’s Public Health Law Program (PHLP) and the National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (NLAPH) considers this relationship among health equity, public health, and law. It invites attendees to explore how examining laws and policies can inform many aspects of public health practice, including, most crucially, those efforts to address structural and systemic inequities.
