Health Care for Vulnerable Populations
According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Annual Homeless Assessment Report, as of 2017 there were around 554,000 homeless people in the United States on a given night. Persons experiencing homelessness are less likely to seek health care, have less access to health care, and are likely to have more chronic health conditions. In order to address health care for the homeless, Region 8 health center representatives come together quarterly to talk about new initiatives, opportunities, resources, and best practices around caring for vulnerable populations.
