Health equity is determined by fair access to resources and comparable health outcomes between individuals but is shaped by larger social and political systems. In this Web Forum, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Public Health Law Program and the National Leadership Academy for the Public’s Health (NLAPH) examine the foundations of public health law and its relationship to public health equity. Speakers will discuss the scope of laws that impact social determinants of health in a community, covering topics such as: regulations for safe food, clean water, healthy housing conditions, pharmaceuticals and chemicals, occupational safety and health, and medical practice.
