What the Midterm Elections Mean for Kids

by Irwin Redlener, MD, Co-Founder and President, Children's Health Fund

The midterm elections have changed the political landscape of our country, but what does this mean for kids?  We watched the midterm elections closely here at Children's Health Fund, and remain committed to the idea that engaging new members of congress, educating them on child health coverage and access issues and encouraging their support for policies and programs that ensure that children get the services they need is the best course of action. 

This past year has seen tremendous gains for kids in terms of health insurance coverage.  Reforms that expand coverage to reach more kids, strengthen the workforce and community based care and ensure the quality of care children receive benefit all Americans and are a sound investment in our country’s future.  We will be vigilant in working to defend these gains now and in the future. 

We hope we can count on you to join us.
