For over a decade, PHAN has advocated for a policy agenda informed by the experiences and needs of real Pennsylvanians.

PHAN envisions a future in which all Pennsylvanians have access to high-quality, affordable, and equitable healthcare. Our unique model blends direct service with community organizing and policy advocacy to elevate the voices of the people who are most impacted by health policy.

We bring together diverse coalitions of stakeholders and communities - both rural and urban - throughout our state to win lasting policy change on a broad range of healthcare issues, such as increasing affordability, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, the creation of a state-based marketplace, and defending Medicaid"
