Join the Florida Department of Health in recognizing April as National Minority Health Month. The 2018 Minority Health Month theme is “Partnering for Health Equity,” which provides an opportunity to highlight the partnerships that help reduce disparities in health and health care.

The conditions in the places where people are born, grow, live, work, play, learn and age have significant impact on the health outcomes of individuals, families and their communities. To ensure Floridians in all communities have opportunities to achieve healthier outcomes, the department has chosen health equity as one of the priority health areas in the State Health Improvement Plan (SHIP), which will guide strategic health interventions for the next five years.

To find out how the department is working with state and local agencies to promote opportunities for vulnerable individuals and their communities, visit the Florida SHIP website.

Don’t touch or shake hands with people who are sick.

Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.

Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your upper sleeve or elbow, not your hands.
