Disability Advisors: Involving People with Disabilities in Public Health Decision-Making

People with disabilities are a recognized health disparity population in the U.S. They are more likely to experience poor or fair health, multiple chronic health conditions, and environmental barriers as compared to people without disabilities. A key strategy of the National Stakeholder Strategy for Achieving Health Equity is to: “build capacity at all levels of decision making to promote community solutions for ending health disparities” (p. 108, available at: https://minorityhealth.hhs.gov/npa/templates/content.aspx? lvl=1&lvlid=33&ID=286). Within the disability community, this principle is expressed as, “Nothing about us without us.”
