Today, the Protect Our Care organization released a new report detailing priorities for addressing racial disparities in health care access and outcomes.

Donald Trump’s health care sabotage coupled with his complete failure to respond to the coronavirus pandemic has revealed and exacerbated the deep inequalities in our health care system that are the result of structural racism.

This new report details meaningful steps President-elect Biden and HHS Secretary-designate Xavier Becerra can take to address these racial disparities as they work to enact priorities of expanding coverage, lowering costs, and taking on health inequities.

Report: Protect Our Care’s Priorities for Addressing Racial Disparities in Health Care

“Donald Trump’s war on health care and the coronavirus pandemic have shed even more light on the deep inequities caused by structural racism in our health care system. These inequities mean people of color face higher rates of chronic illnesses as well as steep barriers to accessing health care,” said Protect Our Care Executive Director Brad Woodhouse.

“When President-elect Joe Biden takes office, there are a series of steps he and HHS Secretary-designate Becerra can take to begin to make meaningful changes to reverse these racial disparities in health care access and outcome. This new report summarizes these actions and the impacts they will have for communities of color across the country.”
