This panel explored different approaches and perspectives for tackling the root causes of health inequity in public health practice. Many practitioners are learning that conventional practice, through the provision of health programs and services, while absolutely necessary, cannot prevent the ongoing generation of health inequities, which continue to increase along with social and economic inequality. Practitioners and analysts, based on recent research, experience are searching for more long-term approaches that directly engage with policy, racism, class, and gender issues. Panelists addressed the policies, procedures, and unnoticed public narratives that perpetuate health inequities and identified opportunities for more intensive, coordinated action with allies.
