In the United States, it is alarming that medical errors are the third leading cause of death, behind heart disease and cancer. Globally, preventable complications following medical care contribute to more deaths than people dying from HIV, malaria, and tuberculosis (TB) combined, and this estimate is likely to increase during these unprecedented times. Much of this harm is preventable and all these people die needlessly.
This issue affects us all, no matter our age or race or the size of our bank accounts. We do know that people of color experience harm more frequently when they seek health care and we must unite to address this epidemic. Together we can find solutions and bridge this major gap in our system.
