The Alliance for Health Policy, formerly the Alliance for Health Reform, is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping policymakers understand the foundations of health policy, the roots of the nation’s health care issues, and the trade-offs posed by various proposals for change. Since our founding 25 years ago, we have earned a reputation as an honest broker in the Washington, D.C., health policy community.
What We Do
Health policy isn’t easy. That’s why for 25 years, the Alliance has been helping to clarify and synthesize the issues for generations of policymakers and staff. But we do more than inform policymakers–we create a forum for dialogue by bringing together the health policy community to advance the conversation on tough issues. The Alliance has conducted hundreds of briefings on Capitol Hill and around the nation on timely and important health policy topics. Our events are among the most widely-respected and well-attended inside the Beltway, regularly drawing audiences of 200 or more congressional and agency staff, media, and health policy stakeholders. Whether they are new to health policy or seasoned experts, our audience looks to the Alliance as the trusted source of health policy information.
The Alliance is unique among entities in the Washington, D.C., area: Our goal is to carry out unbiased educational events for health care policymakers. Through our programs, including policy retreats for congressional staff and members of Congress, briefings for the health policy community, and press briefings, we bring together top national experts to convey the foundations of health policy and advance the dialogue on challenging health policy issues.
