CDF-CA Child Health
In California, despite significant strides in children’s health coverage, disparities persist, leaving underprivileged and Black and Brown children and youth behind. These gaps in care can hinder their growth and academic success.
We envision a California where every young person has equal access to comprehensive health services. We’re committed to breaking down barriers based on ethnicity, zip code, family income, or immigration status.
To achieve this vision, we advocate for crucial steps, including protecting Medicaid, CHIP, and the Affordable Care Act, ensuring affordable health coverage for all children, providing timely access to quality health care, expanding mental health services, and supporting comprehensive health services in schools. Join us in creating a healthier future for every child and youth in California.
