Health experts agree that better data is essential to fully understand, and eliminate, health disparities. Complete, accurate and consistent data can help us better identify and serve at-risk populations. Data can show how disease prevalence, quality of treatment, and health outcomes differ from one community to another. It can also be used to monitor the effectiveness of health programs and track progress in eliminating disparities.
One of the nation’s most diverse states, New Jersey is home to people from many cultures, races and ethnic groups.
The Office of Minority and Multicultural Health is committed to helping people in these diverse communities live longer, healthier lives and to leading the effort to reduce – and eventually eliminate – health disparities in New Jersey.
