Health

  • Universal to all faith traditions is the call to safeguard our personal health and the health of others as a moral obligation. ICCR’s voice in the national discourse on domestic health care begins with this moral mandate. Adequate health care and the right to security during sickness is guaranteed under Article 25 of the UN Universal Declaration on Human Rights, however these rights are regularly violated and, for those in our nation least able to afford it, access to affordable health care often remains out of reach. As people of faith, we are called to address the injustices of the current health care system; as investors and professionals working in the field, we are called to address its inefficiencies.
