25 Years One Voice
Community Health Partnership reflects on 25 years of advocacy to improve the health outcomes of our most vulnerable. We touch on what CHP does
and why we've been successful through our many collaborative projects.
Here, you will find information about our efforts towards improving health care access for our communities through our member health centers and
clinics. These health centers and clinics are integral to our region’s health care safety-net, as they provide culturally and linguistically
appropriate health care to all, regardless of income or health coverage status.
The Community Health Partnership is a policy-advocacy organization with a clear mission: to advocate for affordable, accessible health services for our region’s diverse communities, and assist our health centers and clinics in achieving these goals.
Hand in hand with our clinic membership, we are leveraging policy to expand health care access and streamline the continuity of care our patients receive. To this end, our four strategic priorities are to:
- Expand Access to Health Care, by identifying and addressing barriers within the healthcare system that prevent access to care,
in partnership with funders and government agencies; securing resources across member health centers and community clinics to improve availability
of care; and increasing visibility of our members’ health care services to reach more patients
- Ensure Workforce Readiness in a Changing Health Care Environment, by offering provider and clinic staff training.
- Improve Quality of Care, by leading a creative, solutions-oriented approach to patient-centered health care, advancing systems
of data collection and management, and conducting quality improvement programs across our member clinics and health centers
- Shape Health Care Policy, through thought leadership in health care reform and advocating for our community clinics and health centers and their patients with policy makers
Consistent with all great endeavors, our work requires collaboration and support. We are thankful to our funders and key partners such as the County of Santa Clara, the California Primary Care Association (CPCA), and the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC) who share our vision for an integrated health care delivery system that is affordable and accessible to all communities.
