Racism and access to healthcare

A study of autistic adults and their access to health care in the USA, showed that black beneficiaries were significantly less likely than white beneficiaries to be eligible for insurance at all ages. Average expenditures for eligible beneficiaries on certain insurances were higher among white beneficiaries compared to black beneficiaries.

Racism in access to healthcare exists, and it has been more than proven in studies.

We need equal access and support and not discrimination against being black, female, trans or any other.

Racismo no acesso a cuidados de saude

Um estudo sobre autistas adultos e o seu acesso a Saude nos EUA, mostrou que beneficiários negros eram significativamente menos prováveis ​​do que beneficiários brancos de serem elegíveis pelo seguro em todas as idades. Os gastos médios para beneficiários elegíveis em determinados seguros foram maiores entre os beneficiários brancos em comparação com os beneficiários negros.

O racismo no acesso aos cuidados de saúde existe, e tem sido mais do que comprovado em estudos. Precisamos de igualdade de acesso e apoio e não discriminando por ser negro, mulher, trans ou qualquer outro.
