The National Health Council (NHC) envisions a society in which all people have access to quality health care that respects personal goals and aspirations, and is designed around the patient experience to promote their best possible health outcomes.

To accomplish this, our membership includes the nation’s most trusted patient advocacy organizations, as well as professional and membership associations, nonprofit organizations with an interest in health, and major branded and generic pharmaceutical, health insurance, medical device, and biotechnology companies.

By working with all stakeholders, we get things done to improve the health of people with chronic conditions – helping them to live longer and feel better.  To achieve our mission – providing a united voice for people with chronic diseases and disabilities and their family caregivers – we rely on a broad base of support.

Pursuant to our Standards of Excellence, the NHC discloses the financial support it receives from all sponsors. The NHC posts its disclosures on this webpage within six months of the close of the fiscal year.
