Summary

People living in poverty are less likely to have access to health care, healthy food, stable housing, and opportunities for physical activity. These disparities mean people living in poverty are more likely to die from preventable diseases. Programs and policies that make food, housing, health care, and education more affordable can help reduce poverty.
