The National Partnership for Action to End Health Disparities (NPA) was established by the Office of Minority Health (OMH) to "mobilize a nationwide, comprehensive, community-driven, and sustained approach to combating health disparities and to move the nation toward achieving health equity" The innovative community driven approach, with which the NPA was developed, vests key stakeholder and community leaders with the responsibility of identifying and developing key activities, approaches and partnerships to help end health disparities in the United States.

Two key strategies were developed to address the priorities the outlined in the NPA:

As the federal designee for the OMH in Arizona, the Arizona Health Disparities Center coordinates efforts with key partners, local organizations, stakeholders and community leaders to promote awareness of the NPA and to develop activities and projects that align with the NPA's strategies to end health disparities. As part of this process, the AHDC worked with key stakeholders to identify and develop strategies to improve health equity in Arizona. The result was the 2013 Arizona Health Equity PlanPDF.
