The NPA is mentioned in the latest report by RWJF called 'What is Health Equity?''. The NPA is highlighted in the report as a resource for practitioners and decision-makers looking for tools to help them better design, implement and evaluate initiatives to achieve health equity. The report puts forth four key steps to achieve health equity: Identify important health disparities; Change and implement policies, laws, systems, environments, and practices to reduce inequities in the opportunities and resources needed to be healthier; Evaluate and monitor efforts using short- and long-term measures as it may take decades or generations to reduce some health disparities and reassess strategies in light of process and outcomes and plan next steps.
