For 50 years, the National Health Law Program has been fighting to protect health rights of low-income individuals, families and underserved communities. Since 1969, we have been on the front lines educating, advocating, and litigating to ensure that all people living in the United State have access to quality health care regardless of their race, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or income.

Strategic Action Fund

In commemoration of 50th anniversary, we launched the Strategic Action Fund campaign to raise funds to support National Health Law Program’s future vital work.

Our vision is of a country where everyone has access to the resources they need to be healthy, but the current threats to health care are great and they are not going away.

Our goal is to expand our base of supporters and raise 2 million dollars in unrestricted funding so that we can remain nimble, swift and powerful in our protection of publicly funded health care.
