The North Carolina Alliance for Health (NCAH) is an independent, statewide, nonpartisan coalition of individuals and organizations. We convene, mobilize, support, and empower partners to advance equitable policies that reduce health disparities, prevent chronic disease, and promote health.
NCAH’s staff and board keep NCAH running day-to-day, while NCAH’s members set the policy agenda and guide NCAH’s campaigns. NCAH also works with many local, state, and national partners, who provide expertise and input on NCAH’s priorities.
NCAH has policy committees addressing each of NCAH’s three priority areas: tobacco use prevention and cessation, healthy food access, and active living. Each policy committee meets on a regular basis to develop and implement the strategies for advancing NCAH’s policy priorities. These committees have successfully advocated for many policies that reduce health disparities and prevent chronic disease.
Since 2002, we have made great strides toward our vision. We now have full-time staff members, a committed coalition of members and partners, and a portfolio of policy successes in each of our priority areas.
