Health

To eliminate/reduce health disparities and improve health outcomes for New Yorkers, WCC supports policies that increase availability and access to quality physical, behavioral and mental health services, eliminate financial barriers to care, guarantee access to sexual and reproductive health services, sustain health care providers who provide quality primary care to poor and undocumented residents, mitigate the effects of homelessness and reduce gun related and domestic violence. WCC also advocates for increased access to pre-natal care, family support during infancy, palliative care, appropriate end-of-life supports and a continuum of affordable medical, housing and social services that offer high quality of life, dignity and personal choice to those who need assistance.
