Arkansas Minority Health Commission
To assure all minority Arkansans equitable access to preventive health care and to seek ways to promote health and prevent diseases and conditions that are prevalent among minority populations.
The Commission supports its mission through:
- Studying issues relating to the delivery of and access to health services for minorities in Arkansas;
- Identifying any gaps in the health service delivery system that mainly affect minorities;
- Making recommendations to relevant agencies and to the legislature for improving the delivery and access to health services for minorities; and
- Studying and recommending whether adequate services are available to ensure future minority health needs will be met.
The AMHC’s vision is that minority Arkansans have equal opportunity and access to health care and preventive well care.
Our goal is to be a catalyst in bridging the gap in the health status of the minority population and that of the majority population in Arkansas. To accomplish this, the commission focuses on addressing existing disparities in minority communities, educating these communities on healthier lifestyles, promoting awareness of services and accessibility within our healthcare system, and making recommendations to relevant agencies, the Governor, and the state legislature.
