Pay Equity HIA

Location Wayne County Michigan
Organization Wayne County Department of Public Health

With funding from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the Wayne County, MI Department of Public Health completed a health impact assessment (HIA) of a national and statewide policy proposal for gender pay equity.  Wayne County DPH’s Place Matters team is focused on infant mortality, and is interested to work on upstream issues that impact maternal and child health, such as education, income and employment, and social perception.  The HIA focused on the health impacts of pay inequity, specifically assessing changes in general health outcomes related to stress, mental health, and access to health insurance.
