The National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA), an initiative led by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Minority Health , promotes cross-sector, multi-level and systems-oriented approaches for tackling health disparities. The cross-sector focus of the NPA evolves from the understanding that disparities are rooted in the inequitable distribution of underlying social determinants of health, such as education, employment, and environmental quality. The NPA envisions a path to health equity that includes changes to policies, practices and programs over time, at multiple levels of government and across different sectors, such that the promotion of health equity becomes integral to how organizations operate.

To support the integration of health equity in programs, policies and practices, the Federal Interagency Health Equity Team (FIHET) has created a monthly speaker webinar series to create a collaborative and learning environment to highlight current practices and innovative strategies for this type of work across sectors and at different levels of government. The series launched on May 7, 2014.
