Advocacy Issues - Overview

As outlined in CHA's Advocacy Agenda, CHA is committed to work for a health care system that provides accessible and affordable health care for all. We have taken a leadership role on issues of particular importance to the Catholic health ministry, as outlined by members of the ministry working together with CHA's advocacy and public policy staff. At the same time, we are working as partners with other organizations to support efforts in other areas of concern to the Catholic health ministry.

For more information about CHA's advocacy efforts and the issues we are addressing, see the information provided on this site by subject area content.
