The NASW Policy Statement

“A national health care policy that ensures the right to universal access to a continuum of health and mental health care throughout all stages of the life cycle. The goal of such a policy is to promote wellness, maintain optimal health, prevent illness and disability, treat health conditions, ameliorate the effects of unavoidable incapacities, and provide supportive long-term and end-of-life care. This policy should result in the equitable delivery of services for all people in the United States, regardless of financial status, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, or geographic location.”

National Association of Social Workers, 2008, p 169
