The American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) is spearheading a movement to demand that Congress and the President work toward legislative reform to better meet the needs of Americans with disabilities and chronic illnesses.

The AAPD is calling on the government to reform private insurance, provide access to health care based on need rather than employment or economic status and address the disparities and accessibility issues that prevent people from getting quality care in their communities, among other goals.
