Students for a National Health Program

Mission

Students for a National Health Program (SNaHP) advocates for universal, comprehensive single-payer health insurance. SNaHP believes that access to high-quality health care is a right of all people and should be provided equitably as a public good rather than bought and sold as a commodity. Equitable accessibility requires, in the view of SNaHP, the removal of barriers to adequate health care currently faced by the uninsured, the poor, minority populations and immigrants, both documented and undocumented, as well as those who have health insurance.

The Rush Chapter of SNaHP is aligned with the goals of Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP), a national organization of 18,000 physician members, and hosts events throughout the year related to the discussion of health policy in the U.S. in the form of conferences, lectures, articles, and other methods.
