The 100% Campaign is a collaborative effort of The Children's Partnership, Children Now, and Children's Defense Fund-California. Since 1998, these three leading children's advocacy organizations have worked together to ensure that all of California's children gain access to affordable, comprehensive health coverage. Not only does health coverage improve children's well-being and help them reach their potential in school, investment in comprehensive health coverage for children is cost-effective because it promote access to less expensive preventative care and treatment.
The 100% Campaign uses every viable strategy - including key partnerships with the broadest possible range of community and statewide leaders and policy makers; research and analysis; and public education and outreach - to ensure that all of California's children receive the health insurance they need to grow up healthy and strong.
