Advocate

We call on those in power, from local legislators to world leaders, to advance health care as a human right. Our advocacy team meets with local and national government leaders to share lessons, stories, and results from ERA HEALTHCARE work around the world. We advocate for legislation that eliminates barriers to care and increases resources to advance global health equity.

Injustice in health has many causes, including social, political, and economic forces. For each of the focus areas below, we work to build political power and achieve specific policy goals. We build power through community organizing, driven by our grassroots network, ERA HEALTHCARE Engage, and through intersectional coalition building. This power is critical to getting decision-makers to take action to advance health equity, including through introducing, advancing, and enacting specific legislation.
