Improving Health Care for all Americans
Every American deserves access to affordable, quality health
care. Toward this end, Mrs. Clinton has championed a broad array of health
initiatives, from reform of our health care delivery system to prevention
programs that help Americans lead longer, healthier lives.
As chair of the President's Task Force on Health Care
Reform, the First Lady advocated health care coverage for all Americans. She
has worked to strengthen Medicaid and Medicare and to promote childhood
immunizations. She helped to create and promote the new Children's Health
Insurance Program, which provides health insurance for the millions of children
who are currently uninsured. In addition, Mrs. Clinton has worked to address
specific health problems, including pediatric AIDS, childhood asthma, breast
cancer, and colon cancer.
