Healthcare Justice Campaign
The COVID-19 pandemic has exposed the existing problems in our health care system like never before. Our healthcare system has produced racial disparities in health outcomes that result in people of color having shorter lifespans and a great number of preventable illnesses. Progressive Maryland's Health Care Task Force fights for health care as a human right as well as a broader public health system that ends racial health disparities. We believe we can have a single payer health system where everyone is covered, we can put an end to medical debt, reduce the cost of prescription drugs, and create policies that help reduce preventable illnesses in our communities.
