The health care sector is one of the fastest growing, with health care jobs accounting for one in six new jobs in the United States between 2010 and 2020. Immigrants and refugees represent a substantial number of caregivers across the United States. This workforce is crucial in meeting our nation’s growing health concerns as our population is aging, facing a variety of physical and mental health needs. Philanthropy can advance quality jobs and quality care by supporting the health care immigrant workforce to address these challenges.
