Indicators of such attainment can be quantified in life expectancy at birth or the availability of resources such as housing, employment, education, etc. and the policies and finances that sustain them.

Event Reminder: Health Actions for Immigrant Rights

Event Reminder: Health Actions for Immigrant Rights

“Immigrants are woven into the social fabric, political landscape, and economy of the United States. Research shows that documented and undocumented immigrants make significant contributions as diligent tax payers, home owners, job creators, and workers in the United States, challenging perceptions that immigrants drain the U.S. economy and disproportionately tax the local public health system.....NACCHO encourages local health departments to act on race, ethnicity, class, gender, and other types of oppression as the significant root causes of health inequity among documented and undocumented immigrants.” (National Association of County & City Health Officials)
