Health disparities exist because unjust laws, policies, and practices have shaped the physical, economic, and social environment over many generations.

This creates inequitable opportunities for education, jobs, housing, and transportation.

Law and policy are essential tools to reduce health disparities, which particularly affect Latinos and other communities of color that face more poverty and less opportunity than communities with more political and economic power.

Individuals and groups with political, financial, legal, and social power can ensure that laws, policies, institutions, and investments do not intentionally or unintentionally benefit some at the expense of others.
