The California Health Equity Alliance promotes equal access to health care through awareness, education and communication. We believe that access to necessary treatment and medicine creates a healthier and more productive society.
This begins with the philosophy that people should be afforded fair opportunities to achieve their highest level of health. Health equity means inclusion of all Californians in a health system that does not discriminate between Medi-Cal and private insurance coverage, ethnic minorities, or those without financial means. Health equity should also span the entire care spectrum, from preventative care to diagnosis and treatment.
Our aim is to draw attention to health care disparities, highlight approaches for increasing health care access, and support efforts that further health care equality for ALL CALIFORNIANS.
