Health Care Access
Access to quality mental and physical healthcare is a prerequisite for creating and maintaining healthy communities.
Challenges & Opportunities
Nearly one million New Yorkers report they do not receive the medial care they need. High blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, depression, and substance abuse affect all New Yorkers, with low-income residents bearing the burden of disproportionately high incident rates.
To reduce disparities in health outcomes, the City will work to develop a healthcare delivery system that emphasizes an integrated and patient-centered approach to care that is delivered in convenient and accessible locations.
