HEALTH EQUITY MEANS OPPORTUNITY FOR ALL

The health of each of us affects the health of all of us. It’s easier for healthy people to learn, to work, to raise a family, and to give back. The more of us who are healthy, the less of a price we all pay.

Most Delawareans agree that everyone deserves a fair and equal chance for health. We’re getting closer, but we still have some gaps to close, mostly with families with low incomes and families of color.

Health equity means creating that fair and equal chance. It takes more than personal choices. It takes communities where streets and housing are safe, where transportation is good, where there is plenty of fresh food and parks to make sure that everyone has their chance to thrive.

PLACE MATTERS WHEN IT COMES TO YOUR HEALTH

Where you live often matters for how healthy you and your family live. People in one zip code may live sicker and die younger than people in the zip code right next door.
View these maps to see how different zip codes fare when it comes to life expectancy, infant mortality, income and education.
