A Time of Opportunity: Local Solutions to Reduce Inequities in Health and Safety

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) Roundtable on Health Disparities in partnership with the Prevention Institute produced this report, A Time of Opportunity: Local Solutions to Reduce Inequities in Health and Safety. In this paper, the IOM Roundtable proposes a set of solutions that are achievable within the local arena. These solutions not only address the critical needs but also bridge traditional health promotion, disease management, and health care solutions with more upstream work that focuses on preventing illness and injury in the first place. The report outlines a composite of community and health care factors that affect health, safety, and mental health and that—most importantly—provide the framework for accomplishing a four-pronged solution.
