Southeastern Health Equity Council Cultural Competency Resource Guide and White Paper

From U.S. Department of Health and Human Services: Office of Minority Health; web-posting from Oct 10, 2016
 
The Southeastern Health Equity Council's (SHEC) Cultural Competency Committee has two useful publications posted on its website"Cultural Competency: What is it and Why is it Necessary?" is a white paper defining "cultural competency" and explaining its importance and need in the alleviating issues of disparities within health care systems. Commonly used terms and concepts are explored in this paper. The "Cultural Competency Resource Guide" is a guide to resources, trainers, institutions, and publications about cultural and linguistic competency that we can share with our members, stakeholders and partners to help address cultural barriers with our health care systems.
 
The SHEC is one of 10 regional health equity councils formed in 2011 as a part of the National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA). The NPA is a national movement with the mission to improve the effectiveness of programs that target the elimination of health disparities through coordination of leaders, partners and stakeholders that are committed to action.
