Abstract The 2012 HHS Environmental Justice Strategy and Implementation Plan (2012 HHS EJ Strategy) proposes a set of strategic elements, goals, strategies and actions to achieve the Department's overarching goals, as outlined in the HHS Strategic Plan 2010-2015. As demonstrated in the HHS Strategic Plan 2010-2015, HHSs assets lie in its programs, policies and activities that (1) provide access to health care, (2) help children get a healthy start in life, (3) advance scientific research to promote health and prevent disease, (4) provide human services for the social and economic well-being of individuals and families, (5) promote prevention and wellness for families and communities, (6) protect against domestic and global health threats and (7) ensure the safety of food and drugs. These programs, policies and activities constitute critical tools for achieving health equity and reducing the health disparities that may result from disproportionate exposures to environmental hazards in minority and low-income populations and Indian Tribes.
