Overview:America's health care system is always a work in progress.
In the heat of debate, opinion leaders need an unbiased source of information so they can understand the roots of the nation's health care problems and the trade-offs posed by competing proposals for change. The Alliance for Health Reform exists to provide that information. We offer a full array of resources and viewpoints, in a number of formats, to elected officials and their staffs, journalists, policy analysts and advocates.
A nonpartisan, nonprofit group, the Alliance believes that all in the U.S. should have health coverage at a reasonable cost. But we do not lobby for any particular blueprint, nor do we take positions on legislation.
Since 1991, the Alliance has organized more than 200 forums in Washington and around the nation, each presenting a balance of expert views. Our forums on Capitol Hill have become so popular that we often receive more than 250 registrations in a day's time. We cosponsor an annual retreat for senior congressional legislative staff dealing with health matters. We have briefed reporters, editorial writers and producers in newsrooms across the country on health policy debates in Washington and how they affect local citizens. The Alliance also has published six highly regarded guides for journalists on covering health issues.
