The Equity Strategy will provide an approach to embedding health equity within South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) to ensure the needs of diverse population groups are reflected in services planning and policy development.
The SWSLHD Equity Strategy will provide a framework for integrating equity into all areas of SWSLHD. Specifically, it will document:
A review of existing strategies was undertaken and interviews with key staff involved in previous strategy development to identify key learnings. Semi-structured interviews and focus groups with key stakeholders and frontline staff have been undertaken. The interviews and focus groups will be focused on: current understanding of equity, how equity is incorporated into their current service/work and examples of current practice.
