The National Health Council (NHC) is proud to have a diverse group of public, private, and nonprofit entities support our important work of putting patients at the center of health care policy. In alignment with our commitment to transparency, our financial information is readily available on this page.
The NHC is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors made up of representatives from our various membership categories. Patient Organization Members (aka Voluntary Health Agencies) hold the majority of seats on the Board to anchor decision making in the mission. Board members set the strategic direction and establish policies to guide the NHC in meeting the mission to provide a united voice for people with chronic diseases and disabilities, and their family caregivers.
Pursuant to our Standards of Excellence, we disclose the financial support we receive from our sponsors and post our disclosures on this page within six to 12 months of the close of the fiscal year.
In addition, we follow the same transparency-focused policies and procedures we ask our members to meet regarding corporate relations, transparency, and conflict of interest. Read more about our:
