Who We Are

Learn more about the unique role of the Alliance for Health Policy.

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 educate congressional and executive agency staff on health policy issues, engage the health care community and stakeholders in solutions-focused dialogues, and convene public webinars on a range of health policy topics and emerging health issues.  Regardless of their point of view, our audience recognizes the Alliance’s reputation as a well-respected source for unbiased health policy information.

To improve health and health care by fostering a balanced exchange of evidence, experience, and multiple perspectives.

What We Do

Health policy isn’t easy. For 30 years, the Alliance has helped to clarify and synthesize current 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 in-person and virtual briefings on timely and important health policy topics. Our in-person events are among the most widely-respected and well-attended in Washington, DC, regularly drawing audiences of 100 congressional and agency staff, media, and health policy stakeholders.
