Health equity is achieved when every person has the opportunity to attain his or her full health potential. Everyone in the neighborhood has a chance to lead a long healthy life and the community works together to achieve this goal.

Una salud equilibrada se logra cuando todas las personas tienen la oportunidad de alcanzar su pleno potencial de salud. Todos en el vecindario tienen la oportunidad de llevar una vida saludable y la comunidad trabaja en conjunto para lograr este objetivo.
