The Council's Work

The Governor's Interagency Council on Health Disparities was established by state lawmakers in 2006 through a bill, and the Governor signed the bill to create the Council.

  • The Council creates an action plan for eliminating health disparities by race, ethnicity, and gender in Washington.
  • The Council convenes advisory committees to assist in the planning and development of specific issues in collaboration with several state agencies and non-government partners.
  • The Council has developed many recommendations to support language assistance.
