Commitment to civil rights

At the Utah Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), we prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, age, disability, gender, or religion. DHHS prohibits discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in matters concerning employment and housing. The Department is committed to making its programs, benefits, services and facilities accessible in accordance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

The Utah Department of Health and Human Services believes in the dignity of every person and rejects racial discrimination in all forms. We advance justice, diversity, and inclusion throughout our practice and operations. Together, we maintain our individual and organizational responsibility to proactively learn about and address harmful bias and disproportionate outcomes. We stay true to our purpose of supporting individuals, families, and communities so that they may thrive in an environment free of systemic inequities.  

The Utah Department of Health and Human Services will advocate for, support, and serve all individuals and communities in Utah.
