The diversity of the Health Coalition of Alberta’s membership base reflects a wide variety of diseases and conditions, ages, populations and genders. We have come together to advocate with a united voice on key issues that impact all Albertans. Members have identified three priority areas: patient/stakeholder engagement in health care discussions/decisions; improving access to care for all Albertans; and, improving access to medications for all Albertans.
The Coalition works to achieve these priorities through primary initiatives like education of members and the public, raising awareness regarding health care reform decisions and service changes which could impact Albertans, particularly patients in their care pathways, as well as advocacy on key health care access issues.
Members provide input to shape policy positions and are given materials, training and resources to help promote awareness of key issues alongside the Coalition’s own activities. Click on the headings below to find out more about each priority:
