WASHINGTON — The Department of Veterans Affairs has unveiled its Equity Action Plan, which the agency said would remove hurdles for marginalized veterans to access health care, benefits and services.

“The department’s mission is to ensure equity and access for all those who served their country in uniform, and the Equity Action Plan is a natural extension of that mission,” VA Secretary Denis McDonough said in a prepared statement. “We have efforts underway to change policies, processes and procedures, as well as identify infrastructure and data enhancements to enable access to all veterans, including underserved veterans.”
