NCRW Fact Sheet: Immigrant Women--Access to Health Insurance, Healthcare and Public Services
Immigrant women face particular hardship in accessing basic health and other vital services due to a series of legal, social and cultural barriers that prevent them from exercising their civil rights. More efforts need to be focused at the local, state and national levels to ensure that their needs are recognized and addressed.
