Health equity is achieved when every person has the opportunity to “attain his or her full health potential” and no one is “disadvantaged from achieving this potential because of social position or other socially determined circumstances.” Health inequities are reflected in differences in length of life; quality of life; rates of disease, disability, and death; severity of disease; and access to treatment. Everyone deserves to be treated equally to eliminate cancer disparities to improve the health of all Californians. Find resources and learn of various statewide efforts to reduce cancer-related health disparities and achieve health equity and across the cancer continuum.
