The main thrust of the ARC-NL Healthcare for All Campaign’s organizing and advocacy efforts have been directed towards removing permanent residence and work/study status as a requirement for healthcare, including vaccines, vaccine passes and, in particular, MCP (NL health insurance). We have advocated for healthcare policy-makers and practitioners to:
- take an anti-racist lens to their work;
- address racist bias and exclusion in healthcare policy-making and research, particularly in relation to migrant health;
- meaningfully address racist discrimination of workers and patients/service-users in healthcare delivery; and, most importantly,
- to extend healthcare through an expansion of MCP coverage to all residents of the province, regardless of their citizenship and work/study status.
