Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Justice: Findings and Policy Impacts in PEPReC’s Work

Inspired by the White House’s request to ensure federal agencies equitably serve all eligible individuals and communities, the Partnered Evidence-based Policy Resource Center (PEPReC) developed an initiative to review, incorporate, and uplift a diversity, equity, inclusion, and justice (DEIJ) lens into their center’s work and culture.

Policy analysts at PEPReC drafted a policy brief that shares project-specific evaluation findings related to different health and access outcomes for different Veteran subpopulations and explains how policy changes could improve access to care and mortality risk factors for Veterans with marginalized identities. Read the full brief here.

PEPReC, within the Veterans Health Administration and funded in large part by the Quality Enhancement Research Initiative (QUERI), is a team of health economists, health services and public health researchers, statistical programmers, and policy analysts who engage policymakers to improve Veterans’ lives through evidence-driven innovations using advanced quantitative methods.
