Health Policy Handbook

At the Alliance, we believe a better health care system begins with a balanced exchange of evidence, experience, and multiple perspectives. To achieve this mission, we strive to educate and prepare the next generation of health policy leaders through collaborative learning and conversation.

The Health Policy Handbook is designed to serve as a primer for congressional, executive branch and support agency staff, journalists, and others who are interested in a quick-study of the key foundations of health policy. This Handbook features a collection of seven chapters, each devoted to one core health policy topic and supplemented by extensive resource lists.
