Why do we promote Salud Sin Barreras?
• Because healthcare is a human right, not a privilege, and we should fund healthcare needs in a way that does not exclude anyone.
• Low-income immigrants face exclusion from accessing health care services due to their type of employment or immigration status.
• Moving through and out of the COVID pandemic, reliable access to health care is more important than ever. Immigrant communities deserve consistent access to healthcare and the permanent removal of barriers to healthcare.
