Health Reform is About You and Me, Not One or the Other

he national strategy.


Is this worth the effort? Absolutely! The savings to be gained by eliminating health disparities are more than seven times greater than those to be generated by the pharmaceutical industry, and more than three times greater than those to be generated by hospitals in health reform. The Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities Coalition Chaired by the African American Health Alliance, continues to bring this important requirement for cost effective health reform to the attention of the Congress and the Administration. To date, pending legislation still does not include provisions for this important strategy--despite the fact that effective and efficient health reform must address health disparities in a comprehensive way.

Including these legislative provisions in the bill is not just good health sense--it's good business sense and good economic sense.

Without a national plan to end racial and ethnic health disparities, it will be impossible to reduce healthcare costs, provide access to quality healthcare for all, and guarantee this and future generations that our nation will remain a global leader. Congress must not overlook or ignore this opportunity to reduce the deficit, save lives, and improve quality of life by including legislative provisions for a National Strategy to End Racial and Ethnic Health Disparities in the final health reform bill.
