Oregonians weigh in on health equity

Share this post:
In a recent survey for the Northwest Health Foundation (NWHF) we asked Oregonians for their thoughts regarding equity in health and healthcare. We started out by providing several general statements about access to healthcare and asked respondents to assess their overall agreement with each. Check out NWHF's perspectives on health equity here.

Do you agree/disagree strongly or somewhat with each statement?

A few notable findings:

  • Agreement was highest (93%) with the message centered around access to healthcare for children.

  • 71% agreed that healthcare is a human right.

  • In general, Democrats and women were more likely than their counterparts to agree with each statement.

  • There were no significant differences in agreement by respondent's area of state.
