TFAH Board of Directors Issues Statement on U.S. Health Care Crisis
Date:12/14/2007

WASHINGTON, Dec. 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from the Trust for America's Health (TFAH) Board of Directors:

"America faces a major health crisis because the United States does not have a coherent health care system.

Nearly 47 million Americans are uninsured;

Tens of millions of Americans are suffering everyday from all manner of diseases, despite spending $2 trillion a year on medical care, more than any other nation in the world.

Our nation's poor health is jeopardizing America's economic security.

That is why we believe that all Americans should have access to affordable, quality health care.

That is why we believe that wellness and disease prevention efforts should be national priorities and a strong public health system must be part of the solution.

And that is why we believe that every American should have the opportunity to be as healthy as he or she can be, regardless of racial, ethnic or economic circumstances."

Trust for America's Health is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to saving lives by protecting the health of every community and working to make disease prevention a national priority.
