Public Policy and Research
Health centers work hard every day to provide the best care for the communities they serve, and health care policies at the national, state and local levels are critical to supporting this work. NACHC’s focus is to make sure policymakers work hard as well to improve the lives of our patients through coverage and access to care, and ensuring that health centers are strong, thriving, and able to best serve their patients and communities in need.
As the national voice for health centers, NACHC promotes the mission and accomplishments of health centers and works to secure ongoing support and resources to protect and strengthen health center services and expand access to them for people and communities in need.
Health centers depend on bipartisan support from elected officials to ensure continued funding and further public health legislation. Through our Health Center Advocacy Network, NACHC is dedicated to inviting, equipping, and mobilizing advocates to take action through email, social media, videos and more!
