Health equity

We take action to ensure every person has good health care and coverage.

Removing barriers to care for all people

Preventive care is one of the best ways to keep people healthy. But, for many, getting to the doctor can be difficult or even scary. HealthPartners is working to increase the number of people getting preventive care. We’re doing that by making visits to the doctor easier and less intimidating for all people. Because everyone deserves good health.

At-home chlamydia screening

Chlamydia is the most common sexually-transmitted infection (STI). And it accounts for about 80 percent of STIs in Minnesota. However, embarrassment, cost and transportation keep many people from going to the doctor. That’s why HealthPartners created an at-home chlamydia test.

Less invasive cancer screening

Many people avoid colonoscopies because they’ve heard they’re uncomfortable. So, we’re offering less-invasive screening options.

Healthy beginnings for babies

Building strong relationships between pregnant women and their doctors is important. So is our work encouraging parents to read, talk and sing with kids.

Depression screenings after pregnancy

Babies get a lot of well-deserved attention. We want to make sure moms get the attention they need too. So, we’re incentivizing new moms to complete their postpartum health care visits.

Homes in the community

Imagine living without a safe place to call home. Now imagine trying to stay healthy under those circumstances. We work with Habitat for Humanity to help make homes a reality.
