The State of Health Equity in Vermont

Chart: Only 76% of Black adults in Vermont report having a primary care provider, a significant difference compared to the rest of Vermont

Some people in Vermont have more opportunities to lead a healthy life than others, as is seen across many data points and real-life stories. Closing the gap in health outcomes is at the core of our work and one of our strategic goals. To understand current inequities, and see our progress, we analyze and publish data focusing on specific populations in Vermont. The comprehensive information shared here will help all of us working on health equity understand the disparities within Vermont and build a more equitable future.
