An E-bulletin brought to you by The Child Welfare League of America


Cover the Uninsured Week, May 10-16, 2004

5/5/2004:   Nearly 44 million Americans live without health insurance coverage--including 8.5 million children. In 2002, the number of people without health insurance increased by more than 2 million, the largest one-year increase in a decade. And rising health care costs continue to make it difficult for individuals, businesses, and state governments to purchase health care coverage. That's why CWLA is joining dozens of other organizations to promote Cover the Uninsured Week 2004, educating Americans about the problem and offering guidance to the uninsured and small business owners to reverse this disturbing trend.

During Cover the Uninsured Week, May 10-16, more than 1,000 events will be held in communities across the country, including health and enrollment fairs for uninsured Americans and health insurance seminars for small-business owners. To find out about activities in your area or take a look at fact sheets and other relevant materials, visit www.CoverTheUninsuredWeek.org, or call 202/572-2928.
