Our Vision

Our vision is a health policy process driven by credible and comprehensive evidence, leading to equitable, impactful and, cost-effective laws, policies, and programs. We also believe data should be democratized and put into the hands of the public in ways that inform, educate, and result in grass-roots-driven policy change. Ultimately, we aim to develop crucial evidence to support the elimination of persistent disparities in health and health coverage.
