The Alliance for Health Policy is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to helping policymakers and the public better understand health policy, the root of the nation’s health care issues, and the trade-offs posed by various proposals for change.
We believe a better health care system begins with a balanced exchange of evidence, experience, and multiple perspectives.
The Alliance serves as a trusted resource, empowering current and future health policy leaders to improve the nation’s health care system by advancing their understanding of the issues that matter and by convening them in solutions-focused conversations.
