Many issues keep Colorado’s health care system from working for all Coloradans.
We prioritize issues that create opportunities and eliminate barriers to health equity for patients, families, and communities. That means both improving the health care system and ensuring factors like race, income, or ZIP code don’t determine a person’s access to that system or opportunity to live a healthy life. Some issues, like health equity, are always a part of our work; others come and go as we evaluate their potential impact to drive change. Find out how these issues are affecting Coloradans and what we’re doing about it.
Coloradans should be able to get the health care they need, when they need it.
Our systems and institutions shouldn’t advantage some and hurt others.
Immigrants are an important part of Colorado’s economy and future.
Coloradans should pay for quality, not quantity, in health care.
Social factors like race, income, and ZIP code shouldn’t determine a person’s health.
