Health Equity is the new peer-reviewed open access journal that meets the urgent need for authoritative information about health disparities and health equity among vulnerable populations with the goal of providing optimal outcomes and ultimately health equity for all. With coverage ranging from translational research to prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and management of disease and illness, the Journal serves as a primary resource for organizations and individuals who serve these populations at the community, state, regional, tribal, and national levels.

Health Equity is supported by a generous grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to ensure that it is accessible as widely as possible and to provide a framework for achieving health equity for children, families, and communities by reducing and ultimately eliminating disparities in health and their social, economic, and environmental determinants.

All articles in the Journal are rapidly reviewed and published online within 4 weeks of acceptance, and publish under the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 (CC BY) license to ensure broad dissemination and participation.

Health Equity is under the editorial leadership of Ana E. Núñez, MD, Associate Dean for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and Professor of Medicine, Drexel University School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA.

Audience: Physicians, nurses, and other healthcare providers; policy makers at the community, state, regional, tribal, and national levels; psychologists and social workers; educators; and researchers; among others.
