National Minority Quality Forum’s (NMQF) Institute for Equity in Health Policy and Practice is a member-driven collaboration designed to harness the political and economic will that is amassing in response to the realization that structural and systemic inequity is the proximate cause of amenable and avoidable morbidity and premature mortality. These structural inequities include scientific research and quality metrics that ignore patient variability, in health care policies that promote disparities, and in poor health outcomes and medical errors for an increasing number of Americans.
