Tackling Entrenched Healthcare Disparities

Our healthcare system is fundamentally broken. Families in the Massachusetts 7th struggle with some of the highest per capita healthcare costs in the nation, even as they live in the shadow of some of the best healthcare institutions in the world. Transformational change is needed to shrink the deeply embedded disparities in our healthcare system and deliver the health justice that our communities deserve and demand.

Ayanna believes we need Medicare For All to ensure that every person in our country has consistent access to essential care. We need to improve health outcomes for communities that are simultaneously impacted by health disparities and overlooked in our national conversations around healthcare access. We need to continue to invest in community health centers. And we need to keep advocating and legislating for an equitable public health response to the COVID-19 pandemic, that includes those suffering from Long COVID.
