About Us

Aligning for Health

Aligning for Health is a membership association which, with the support of our members and Advisory Board, will advocate for solutions that address the common challenge of our members – the need for more efficient, integrated and coordinated programs to better improve health outcomes for Americans.

AFH has:

  1. Assessed current opportunities for coordination of relevant health and human service programs across the federal government, such as housing, food assistance, workforce training, transportation and Medicaid.
  2. Identified successful state- and locally-developed cross-sector models addressing social determinants, and reviewed the role of the private sector and charitable initiatives in such models.
  3. Met with county and state officials to understand the challenges and barriers they face in addressing the whole-person needs of vulnerable and/or or high-cost patients.

AFH Will:

  1. Build and execute on an advocacy campaign to support solutions to address social determinants.
  2. Cultivate supportive Governors and state and local officials.
  3. Lobby the Trump Administration and Congress.
  4. Educate interested stakeholders.
  5. Work with agencies at the state and federal level to assist in developing Social Determinants Accelerator Plans.

What We Will Do

Our primary goal is to advocate for the Social Determinants Accelerator Program, which will help states and communities develop evidence-based cross-sector interventions and approaches that will improve health outcomes by addressing social determinants.
