YWHO and Health Equity
YWHO takes a health equity approach
Taking a health equity approach across all levels of YWHO means recognizing that the current systems we live in were not built to care for and serve everyone. Planning intentionally and taking concrete action to reduce and remove disparities is essential to our work.
YWHO has expressed commitment to equity, anti-racism, and inclusion, and to improving the quality and accessibility of services for diverse youth across the province.
By prioritizing anti-racism and equity across all levels of YWHO, all youth can have equitable access and more positive outcomes regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, socioeconomic status, and ability.
