Access to adequate and affordable health care is a basic human right. Preventive health care and public health efforts at the national, state and local levels are important contributions to the overall  health of Coloradans. Public health efforts and health care services for low income individuals, the elderly, disabled, and children must be adequately funded. Unless replaced by a health care program providing affordable access to everyone (e.g., Universal Health Care, Medicare for All), the Affordable Care Act including the individual mandate must continue in order to assure health care coverage for as many individuals as possible.
