The NPA was established to mobilize a nationwide comprehensive, community-driven, partnership-based, and sustained approach to combating health disparities and to moving the nation toward achieving health equity. The activities of the NPA aim to build capacity across sectors for action on health disparities at all levels of society, promote and support systems change, empower individuals to improve their health, create a network of leaders and practitioners working toward the common goal of a nation without disparities, and promote a social determinants of health (SDoH) approach for understanding the issues and defining the solutions.

Crucial to the work of the NPA, our partners leverage federal resources and expand our reach and network.
