Campaign for Better Health Care

Our Vision

We envision a society where quality health care is both affordable
and accessible to every person in Illinois and the United States and
where the health care needs of all people are met.

This vision will be achieved though a tenacious grassroots campaign
to educate and involve health care consumers, build coalitions with
other organizations who share our commitment to social justice, and
make regulatory and legislative changes at the local, state and
national levels.

In this future, we will continue to monitor and protect the quality,
accessibility and affordability of this universal health care system.

Our Mission

We believe that accessible, affordable, quality health care is a basic
human right for ALL people.

The Campaign for Better Health Care is a coalition of organizations
and individuals, working to help create and advocate for an
accessible, quality health care system that provides for all.
