Ohio ranks 46 out of 50 states and the District of Columbia (D.C.) on health value, based on the Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s 2019 Health Value Dashboard. The Dashboard found that Ohioans who are racial or ethnic minorities, have a disability, have lower incomes or educational attainment, are sexual or gender minorities and/or live in rural or Appalachian counties, experience the worst health outcomes. These groups of Ohioans face many barriers to being healthy across the life course. For example, they are more likely to be exposed to adverse childhood experiences, violence, racism and discrimination, unequal access to post-secondary education, a job that pays a self-sufficient income and quality housing. Improving health value in Ohio means closing Ohio’s troubling health gaps and ensuring that all Ohioans have the same opportunity to be healthy.
