The National Health Law Program (NHeLP), founded in 1969, protects and advances health rights of low-income and underserved individuals and families. We advocate, educate and litigate at the federal and state levels to advance health and civil rights in the U.S.
Our lawyers and policy experts fight every day for the rights of the tens of millions of people struggling to access affordable, quality health care coverage free from discrimination.
We are committed to cultivating an environment that empowers an exceptional and diverse staff and to advancing health equity in our work. We welcome applicants who represent that diversity and who will contribute to our equity journey, including people of color, women, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ individuals. Learn more about our organization below and check out current job opportunities.
Join the fight to represent those who cannot afford high-priced lawyers and lobbyists to protect their health and civil rights. There is nothing more rewarding than collective action to right the wrongs of the past and create a better tomorrow.

Why We Work at NHeLP
I value working at NHeLP because I can expand my health policy knowledge while working with excellent and dedicated staff on issues that I care deeply about like mental health, reproductive and sexual health, and health equity – Alexis Robles-Fradet, Health Policy Fellow
