Why We Need 9/11 Health Watch

It took years to pass the James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act in 2010 and to renew it in 2015 and extend it in 2019 but the effort to ensure the proper and continued long-term commitment to the health and well-being of 9/11 responders, survivors, and their families endures.

9/11 Health Watch monitors the programs created by the law and are ready to address any lapses in delivery of services and, if necessary, suggest changes to better serve you, our community of heroes, survivors, and their families.

9/11 Health Watch was created to ensure we will never forget.
