Diversity

The valuing of diversity helps to eliminate prejudice and discrimination based on ethnicity.


Equity

  • Health equity means that all have access to the health services and support they need at the time that they need it, and in a place that is easily accessible.
  • Working towards equity is not just about achieving equality in health status. Equity is achieved when people's needs guide the allocation of resources and facilities.


Supportive Environments
