Protecting health privacy isn’t just important for your own health and well-being, but what we do now affects future generations too. PPR cares deeply about protecting everyone’s privacy so that people are measured by who they are and what they are capable of, not their medical history.
Currently, there are no limits to the types of organizations that can gain access to sensitive information about you—employers, advertisers, insurers, you name it. It’s so important that we act now to preserve our right to privacy and regain control over our personal information. We believe it should always be up to you to decide what happens to your sensitive information—you should be able to know and control who sees it, where it goes, and why.
People say that privacy is a thing of the past in the Digital Age, but we disagree. In fact, we think people are starting to realize just how important privacy is and that it’s a right worth fighting for. That’s why we want to hear from you. Send us a video telling us why you think health privacy matters and join us in our efforts to protect it.*
