The fourth component of the EQUITY Framework involves integrating equity into policies and plans. Key considerations are: Does the policy, plan, or strategy identify inequality as a priority to address? Does the policy articulate specific, time-bound equity goals? Does it outline relevant interventions, budgets, and roles and responsibilities that would contribute to attainment of the equity goals? Are mechanisms for monitoring and ensuring accountability for achieving equity goals in place? If so, are the poor and their representatives involved to ensure transparency and responsiveness? This brief presents examples of how stakeholders integrated equity into health policies and strategies in Kenya and Uttarakhand, India.
