Joining with Advocates Nationwide to Successfully Defend the Affordable Care Act

Image for Joining with Advocates Nationwide to Successfully Defend the Affordable Care Act

The Public Health Institute has supported many policies over the years, but the outpouring of support and advocacy from our public health partners, network and allies in 2017 to preserve health coverage for millions of Americans was unprecedented. From letters to emails, social media shares to phone calls, PHI's community took tens of thousands of actions on behalf of their own health and to protect the health and wellbeing of people they may never know. And it paid off. Thanks for these actions and those of others across the country, efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act during 2017 were defeated.

Repeal of the ACA and the accompanying Medicaid reductions would have stripped health coverage for millions of people and would have gutted the Prevention and Public Health Fund. Quality health care is critical in creating healthier populations, and PHI will continue advocating for policies to ensure that high-quality health care is affordable and accessible to all.
