Forty-six million Americans are uninsured. More than 9 million of them
are children. More than eight out of 10 are in working families. They
are our friends, neighbors and colleagues--forced to gamble every day
that they won't get sick or injured.
Living without health insurance is a risk no one should have to take.
Cover the Uninsured, a project of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation,
is a national effort to highlight the fact that too many Americans are
living without health insurance and demand solutions from our nation's leaders.
We know that reaching the goal of affordable and stable health care will
require changes in public policy. Through Cover the Uninsured, we are
working to build and sustain broad-based support for change.
This includes raising awareness and building support among policy-makers,
health care professionals, grassroots advocates, faith leaders, the business
community and active citizens through Cover the Uninsured Week and reaching
out to enroll eligible uninsured families in public health coverage programs
during the annual Back-to-School Campaign.
Our work is making a difference and the time for change is now. This is
the year to build upon this momentum to amplify diverse voices on behalf
of the uninsured and get America covered.
