From Families USA Minority Health Initiatives…

Earlier this month, the U.S. Census Bureau released the latest data on income, poverty, and health coverage.

Our new fact sheet, Health Coverage in Communities of Color: Talking about the New Census Numbers takes a closer look at the latest data and finds that communities of color continue to bear the brunt of the uninsured crisis. This fact sheet looks at who is uninsured, who is living in poverty, and why public programs are vital to communities of color.

As Congress continues to debate about how to best improve our nation’s health care system, we’re presented with the opportunity to eliminate disparities in health coverage and address other inequities in the system.

We hope you find this a valuable resource in your work to achieve health equity.
