The Department of Health and Human Services, through the Office
for Civil Rights, promotes and ensures that people have equal
access to and opportunity to participate in and receive services
in all HHS programs without facing unlawful discrimination. Through
prevention and elimination of unlawful discrimination, the Office
for Civil Rights helps HHS carry out its overall mission of improving
the health and well-being of all people affected by its many programs.
This mission is communicated throughout the Department and is
reflected in the customer service nondiscrimination objectives
that have been developed in the Department's strategic plan. Ensuring
the nondiscriminatory provision of services funded by or provided
directly by the Department is a continuing challenge to all of
the Department's employees.
