The event creator says
Join the Health Care is a Human Right Coalition as we get answers from our county health care system about how to improve care for those in need.

In September, citing dire budget shortfalls, the Harris Health board voted to cover fewer people in need. In November, the Houston Chronicle reported that Harris Health's budget shortfall would be millions less than originally predicted- a mere fraction of the numbers used to justify reducing eligibility in half (from 200% of the federal poverity line to 100%).

Harris Health has been sorely remiss in providing interpretation services at their board meetings. These meetings are part of Harris County's government services and so they must guarantee language access to all!

We demand answers:
What are the new Harris Health budget projections?
What is Harris Health’s plan to eliminate health disparities?

We also have solutions:
Re-instate indigent payment status for patients below 200% of FPL
Provide medical supplies for all indigent patients with spinal cord and other catastrophic injuries.
Contract scheduled dialysis for all ESRD patients to prevent the dangerous practice of emergency dialysis.
Guarantee language access to all in the Harris Health System
