UHCAN – Universal Health Care Action NetworkOver 20 years fighting for health care justice: affordable, comprehensive health care for all!

The fight for health care justice is far from over. Many organizations are working hard to implement the Affordable Care Act, counteract efforts to delay or obstruct it, expand Medicaid in their states, defend against threats to undermine Medicaid and Medicare, eliminate disparities in health care, get coverage for all immigrants and move forward wherever possible toward affordable, quality health care for all.
We believe that the success of health care reform in our country hinges on the connections the health care justice movement makes with other justice struggles, so UHCAN also promotes building relationships with other struggles for social and economic justice.
