Policy Advocacy

The policy efforts of the Center for Health Action and Policy (CHAP) bring together the best clinical, scientific, legislative, and regulatory minds to better address the challenges of chronic illness. Working with local, state, and federal governmental agencies, CHAP seeks to create new and better solutions to issues such as:

  • Improving access to healthcare
  • Integrating healthcare services
  • Improving drug policies
  • Reducing health disparities
  • Achieving greater value in health care spending, not merely reduction of costs
  • Timely, but appropriate use of new technologies
  • Improving health promotion and disease prevention practices

CHAP hosts roundtables and symposiums to bring together experts with diverse backgrounds, including patient activists, to discuss the unique challenges facing kidney disease patients.
