The Catholic Health Initiatives (CHI) Board of Stewardship Trustees has endorsed the organization’s Advocacy Priorities for 2017-2018. The Board’s endorsement culminates an extensive priority setting process that involved input from CHI leaders and employees as well as recommendations from the Advocacy Advisory Committee.
CHI’s Advocacy Priorities remain consistent though they have been refined in response to changes in the political, social and health care environment. Universal health care access and coverage has been CHI’s highest advocacy priority for well over a decade and is a key element of our mission to create healthier communities. The updated priorities also identify four specific actions that require immediate advocacy attention.
In addition, CHI continually acts on emerging issues impacting the health and well-being of the communities we serve. Our commitment to advocacy is carried out at the local, state and national levels as we advance our mission of creating healthier communities and serving as a voice for our most vulnerable citizens.
