Report details recommendations aimed to achieve long-lasting and equitable health outcomes for all Wisconsinites
Today, the Governor’s Health Equity Council released its full report “Building a Better Wisconsin: Investing in the Health and Well-being of Wisconsinites” that includes descriptions of each recommendation. Established under Gov. Tony Evers’ Executive Order #17, the council was charged with creating a comprehensive plan to achieve long-lasting and equitable health outcomes for all Wisconsinites. In April, Council Chairperson Gina Green-Harris and Vice-Chairperson Dr. Michelle Robinson released an executive summary, along with the council’s prelude to the report and the principles established to govern this work. The council’s work focuses on improving our state’s overall health and addressing observable health disparities among populations that continue to experience the worst health outcomes due to where they live, their income-levels and access to wealth, or their race or ethnic identity.
