儿童健康

如果孩子在成长的过程中身体健康,那么随着年龄的增长,经济收益就会增加。改善儿童时期的健康状况与提高教育程度,改善就业机会和增加成人收入息息相关。不幸的是,我们的许多孩子没有成功所需的工具。例如,健康保险是儿童获得医疗保健服务以保持他们健康的关键。但是,宾夕法尼亚州东南部成千上万的儿童没有医疗保险,即使其中大多数人都有资格获得公共保险。

Children First’s health related work focuses on the following critical issues in our continuing commitment to address the needs of every child:

  • 确保孩子有健康保险 by enrolling children in public coverage and ensuring the health benefits are comprehensive, that applying and re-applying is simple, and that all children qualify, including children who are undocumented.
  • 改善儿童获得医疗保健服务的机会 primarily to behavioral health, dental, and vision care services.
  • Reduce childhood lead poisoning in southeastern Pennsylvania and across the Commonwealth.
