Accelerating Civic
Engagement within Healthcare

The Civic Health Alliance is a non-partisan coalition of health and civic leaders allied around one common cause: the advancement of America’s health through civic engagement in care settings and communities.

Doctors tend to vote less often than the general population. As do low-income populations and other marginalized communities. Poverty, systemic racism & economic disparities adversely impact the ability of the average American to vote.

In the 2016 U.S. presidential election, only 55.7% of the voting age population cast ballots, putting the United States among the lowest of OECD countries.

Through the efforts of VoteHealth 2020 and myriad other organizations, we grew that number in 2020 to 66.8% - the highest percentage achieved in decades

Eliminating Barriers

We formed the Civic Health Alliance because the 2020 pandemic and presidential election cycle, along with previous elections, demonstrated the undeniable connection between civic engagement and health outcomes.

Building off of our efforts with VoteHealth 2020, the Civic Health Alliance leverages the unique voice and positions of health professionals to encourage their peers, patients, health systems and communities to remain civically engaged around issues that protect health and wellness.
