Texas KIDS COUNT: Health Equity for Every Texas Child
All children deserve the opportunity for a healthy life. In Texas, not all children have the health insurance, food security, and economic security needed for a healthy childhood, due to disparities rooted in systemic racism. Public policy can improve health equity for all Texas children. Policymakers should make practical changes this Legislative Session to ensure all Texas children have the opportunity to thrive. Every Texan shares data findings and policy recommendations from their new report sponsored by Methodist Healthcare Ministries of South Texas, Inc.
