Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) has exposed the vast shortcomings of our nation’s health system and the critical importance of affordable health coverage and care for all people and families. COVID-19 is not affecting everyone in the same way, and it is putting a spotlight on the deeply embedded racial and economic inequities that impact people’s health and well-being. To stem the virus’s impact, we must give everyone a fair shot at getting through the crisis healthy and whole. Looking forward, we need our elected officials to advance policies and programs that will make the country more equitable so everyone has what they need to stay healthy and lead the lives they want. We all do better when everyone does better.
