The Office of Multicultural Health is responsible for providing leadership in promoting, protecting and improving the health of all Connecticut residents by eliminating differences in disease, disability, and death rates among ethnic, racial and culturally diverse populations. 

The Office promotes access to quality health education and health care services; facilitates presence of diverse populations in health planning, program development, policy formation, and outreach and awareness initiatives. The Office functions largely through collaboration with statewide partners. The Office recommends policies, procedures, activities and resource allocations to improve health among the state’s underserved and diverse populations, and to eliminate health disparities.
