Meet Elizabeth and her adorable hedgehog, Thunder! When COVID hit, Elizabeth was sad to have to protect her health and stop working. Her hedgehog and... her family helped comfort her. Through her connection to employment supports, Elizabeth met Dean who introduced her to advocates who are part of #OurVoicesMatter groups across the organization. Elizabeth soon became the chair of the group and had the opportunity to learn important leadership skills during virtual meetings. #HopeInActionCH

Everyone, everywhere, should have access to quality and affordable healthcare. It’s essential; it’s a human right and it is necessary for human ...life to thrive.

Today, on #InternationalUniversalHealthCoverageDay, we acknowledge all the parts of the world where healthcare is limited and inaccessible, especially to people who experience disabilities. In Canada, people with developmental disabilities still face discrimination and inequitable access to healthcare.
