The California Endowment Releases Undocumented California Youth Video and Launches #Health4All Campaign
|March 12, 2013||Posted by Sara Watson under Blog||
The California Endowment releases “Dreaming of Health Care”, a video made in partnership with a group of Californian undocumented youth who are residents of Southern California and the Central Valley.
The video kicks off The Endowment’s #Health4All campaign, an effort to drive a dialog about providing a health care solution for the remaining uninsured. Estimates by the UC Berkeley Labor Center and UCLA Center for Health Policy Research say that even after full implementation of health care reform, more than three million Californians will remain uninsured with a quarter of this population being undocumented. The California Endowment proposes that Low-Income Health Programs (LIHP)—county-run, Medicaid expansion programs set to expire in 2014—be transitioned to provide health care for the remaining uninsured, including undocumented Californians.
