National Partnership for Women & Families

Health Policy

Imagine that every time you interact with the health care system, you leave feeling empowered and knowledgeable. You are able to get the care you need when you need it, without breaking the bank. You feel like your voice is heard and that you’re a part of a health care team that helps you get and stay healthy. You have the information you need to make decisions about your health and care, whether that is electronic access to your own health records or data showing how well a specific health care provider performs.

At the National Partnership for Women & Families, we are working to make that vision a reality by helping put patients and families front and center in every conversation about the future of our health care system.

That means increasing access to affordable health care for everyone by supporting the Affordable Care Act. It means reforming how we deliver care so patients and families are engaged as true partners in their health and care. It means leveraging 21st century technology to give patients, families and providers data that supports informed decision-making. And as a women’s advocacy organization, it means making sure our nation’s policies protect and further women’s access to high-quality, comprehensive reproductive health care throughout their lives. We invite you to learn more about our diverse health policy portfolio and join us in our efforts to America more healthy, fair and family friendly.
