About the Partnership for Health and Disability

The Partnership for Health & Disability is a collaboration between public health and disability advocacy and service organizations on issues that surround health for people with disabilities in the state of Michigan.

Our Mission

The Michigan Health Promotion for People with Disabilities Initiative is a statewide partnership committed to reducing the health disparities between people with disabilities and people without disabilities through member collaboration, expertise, and leveraged resources.

Our Vision

This initiative will address health disparities in people with disabilities through four dimensions:

  • Improving the access of people with disabilities to health care and health screening
  • Promoting management by people with disabilities of their own health and risks
  • Improving the response of health providers to people with disabilities
  • Integrating disability and health into existing health promotion activities
