Health Equity

healthequity

In addition to overall health outcomes and indicators that consistently place Georgia in the bottom tier nationally, our state has considerable health disparities between communities. Racial and ethnic minority communities, rural and low-income urban communities, and those with disabilities and chronic mental illness, all experience worse health and worse opportunities for health than their peers. Georgians for a Healthy Future supports policies and practices that advance the opportunities for optimal health for all Georgians.

A special #healthpolicyvalentine for all you health policy nerds out there:
How do I love thee, Medicaid? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth, breadth, and height of your comprehensive coverage.
I love thee 2 million times over because you cover as many Georgians.
I love thee freely, as you allow seniors to age in their homes.
I love thee purely, as you keep Georgia's children healthy and whole.
I love thee with the same passion that people with disabilities are able to seek employment and education with your support
I love thee with a love I'll never lose in the hopes that we never lose you.
