Health Policy

Health TF image

The Health Policy Task Force believes that comprehensive health care is a basic human right. Every person in America is entitled to receive the full range of science based health care services regardless of race, sex, skin color, religion, gender identity, immigration status, or ability to pay. Health care must be universal and encompass all life stages from birth to death including prevention, diagnosis, treatment, rehabilitation and palliation.

Women’s unique health needs, particularly for women of color, have not been the focus in research studies or public policy.  If you are a former health care provider, researcher, or advocate, and are concerned that women are being denied access to quality general and reproductive health care, we welcome your participation.  If you’re just angry that women’s health is being ignored, we welcome your participation too!
