Despite an increasing number of people with health insurance, many are challenged to get to a health care provider or see a dentist due to provider shortages, transportation barriers, health care costs, or because they don’t feel comfortable with their provider due to language or other cultural difference.
To begin to address these issues: "Access to Equitable Preventive Health Care” has been defined as one of five priorities in the 2020-2024 SHIP. Each priority will be addressed by a subcommittee that will use their experience, expertise, and capacity to create a SHIP that identifies evidence based and innovative strategies for policy, system and environmental changes. Members were recruited based on learned or lived understanding of the topic area, genuine interest in the success of the SHIP, and ability to actively participate in the SHIP process.
