Health Equity Audits

Health Equity Audit (HEA) is used to identify how fairly services or other resources are distributed in relation to the health needs of different groups and areas. The process usually identifies what actions are required to provide services in relation to need (i.e more equitably). The overall aim is to ensure resources are distributed according to how much they are needed to reduce inequalities in health.
