PARTNERSHIP FOR
INCLUSIVE HEALTH

A Partnership that unites organizations behind disability inclusionary practices in healthy community efforts.

38%
Obesity rates for children with disability are higher than for adults without disability.

Inclusive communities provide people with disabilities equal access to and opportunities for healthy living.  This can be achieved by implementing policy, systems, and environmental changes that increase access to physical activity, healthful food, and healthy weight management initiatives.

Health inequity and disparities are not caused by an individual, but rather by a lack of access to healthy opportunities.  Through organized efforts on a population level and the sustainability of these health behaviors, we as a society can make informed choices to create healthy opportunities for everyone.
