Every American deserves access to affordable, quality health care. Toward this end, Mrs. Clinton has championed a broad array of health initiatives, from reform of our health care delivery system to prevention programs that help Americans lead longer, healthier lives.
As chair of the President's Task Force on Health Care Reform, the First Lady advocated health care coverage for all Americans. She has worked to strengthen Medicaid and Medicare and to promote childhood immunizations. She helped to create and promote the new Children's Health Insurance Program, which provides health insurance for the millions of children who are currently uninsured. In addition, Mrs. Clinton has worked to address specific health problems, including pediatric AIDS, childhood asthma, breast cancer, and colon cancer.
