Authors: Wilson, K., Hirschi, M., Comeau, M., Bronheim, S., Bachman, S. S.

Date: 2014

Project: Catalyst Center

Keywords: CYSHCN, Health Equity

In this article, we first provide information about CSHCN, insurance status, and associated disparities. We then discuss practice and policy initiatives that social workers could pursue to reduce these disparities, including initiatives prompted by the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Action aimed at ensuring access to health coverage and care for vulnerable children and their families is a critical component of the mission of the social work profession; social workers are encouraged to take action to promote social and economic justice for CSHCN and their families.

  1. What are their HIV knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors?
  2. How has participation in the CBDPP impacted their knowledge,
    attitudes, and behaviors?
