The Affordable Care Act (ACA): Securing health, dignity, and justice for Latin@s

As the only national organization working on behalf of the reproductive health and justice of 20 million Latinas, their families, and their communities, the National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health (NLIRH) supports full implementation and funding of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The health reform law, signed into law in March 2010, improves access to health care for our communities and lays the foundation for ongoing efforts to improve health equity. For Latinas, who are more likely than other groups to struggle with access to health insurance, the ACA has meant the potential to lead healthier, happier lives.
