The Health, Equal for All team works to achieve equal health care for all citizens in Chile regardless of background, ability to pay, preexisting diseases, sex, age, location, etc. This group is seeking to create resources that can be used to advance policy reform with the goal of aligning policy with ethical principles. This team will include individuals that are well informed in health policy and are motivated to work with a team of multimedia experts to achieve greater equality in access to health care. This team will implement multimedia resources to attract citizens to the debate on health policy. The first step will be a series of short videos that will be disseminated through Chilean social media by the end of the year.
