Building Partnerships To Enhance Equitable Children’s Healthcare: A Roadmap

Social justice and health care are inextricably linked, and an important aspect of social justice is the ability to have fair access to health care and to be taken seriously within the healthcare and social services systems. Health care is not equitable if it is not accessible, and there are still immense gaps in terms of coverage and access for underserved populations, particularly for individuals experiencing homelessness who face many barriers to care. This presentation outlines how the organization has set out to remove those barriers, particularly in the area of advocating for children experiencing homelessness, most of whom have experienced high levels of trauma, including abuse and neglect.
