Course: How to Apply a Health Equity "Lens" When Making Program and Policy Decisions
Description: This course will demonstrate how to use the Equity Impact Review (EIR) tool when making program and policy decisions. The EIR tool is both a process and an instrument to identify, evaluate, and communicate the potential impact - both positive and negative - of a policy or program on equity. The tool directs users to consider equity and social justice impacts in decision-making to increase fairness and opportunity for all people. People of color, low-income communities and people with limited English proficiency are especially vulnerable and most likely to benefit from tool application.
