Raising Women's Voices for the Health Care We Need
The NWHN is working toward the establishment of universal access to health care that meets the needs of diverse women through our Raising Women’s Voices for the Health Care We Need (RWV) campaign. RWV, a collaborative initiative between the NWHN and our partners at the MergerWatch Project of Community Catalyst and the Black Women’s Health Imperative, brings together national state and local health advocates who are committed to making the promise of health reform real for women.
- health insurance marketplaces that engage women as stakeholders, offer plans that cover comprehensive care, including reproductive health care, and actively work to reduce health disparities.
- health insurance outreach and enrollment campaigns that they reach diverse women and families in culturally and linguistically-competent ways, are user-friendly and help women find affordable health policies that meet their health needs.
- expanded eligibility for Medicaid programs in every state so that low-income women and families have affordable insurance options, no matter where they live.
- increased understanding of health care disparities that affect women, immigrants, communities of color, LGBT people and people with disabilities, and promotion of policies that advance health equity.
