SILAMP statement on Health Care Disparities.

 

      Recognizing the extraordinary circumstances we are currently witnessing in the history of our country, and faced with the evidence of the inequality in the delivery of health care that affects mostly people of color and results in severe disparities in health care outcomes, SILAMP (Society of Ibero-Latin American Medical Professionals) recognizes that this situation is unacceptable and unsustainable.

     As an organization that concentrates on promoting good health in the Latino community, one of the groups most affected by Ethnic Health Care Disparities, we are committed to the idea of equality in the delivery and access to health care for all people, regardless of their Race, Sex, Gender, Religion or Sexual Orientation.

      We support all efforts to fight and eliminate Racism and Inequality in any form and at any level.  We will work with organizations that are like minded in their pursuit of respecting human rights, of which health care is one, to eliminate Ethnic Health Care Disparities.
