Tell Your Story | Healthcare Language Access Barriers, COVID-19

Help Document the Impact of Language Barriers on the Patient Population

Language barriers are preventing many members of our diverse communities from accessing critical public health information and services. 


JNCL-NCLIS has been asked to document the impact of language barriers on the patient population during the crisis, and your responses to previous surveys have been instrumental in guiding legislation passage during this time. While we welcome all relevant anecdotes for this issue, we strongly encourage healthcare related organizations to provide their firsthand experience. If you have any other data points that we can use to further justify the need to expand language access provisions, please list them in your response with a URL or citation.


Your responses to this form will amplify our message and help us advocate for language access support in the next phase of COVID-19 relief.
