Health Care Disparities

Latinos are overwhelmingly disconnected from the health care system. As the ethnic group with the highest uninsurance rates in the country, Latinos are often deterred from accessing essential health care services. From this vantage point, it is no surprise that Latinos are at a higher risk of developing health complications later in life and suffer from higher rates of chronic health conditions, such as obesity and diabetes. Racial and ethnic disparities in health care access and quality will continue to grow until policymakers address many of the root causes of these problems. NCLR seeks to advance policy that would correct the flaws of a system that leaves many Latinos and other underserved communities without good health care.
