About Massachusetts PNHP
Massachusetts Physicians for a National Health Program is a single issue organization advocating a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program. Massachusetts PNHP has more than 1,000 members in the state of Massachusetts alone, while national PNHP has over 18,000 members nation-wide.
Since 1987, PNHP has advocated for reform in the U.S. health care system. A large part of our work involves educating health professionals about the benefits of a single-payer system--including fewer administrative costs and affording health insurance for the 46 million Americans who have none.
Our members and physician activists work toward a single-payer national health program in their communities. Massachusetts PNHP organizes rallies, town hall meetings, and debates; coordinates speakers and forum discussions; contributes Op-Eds and articles to the nation's top newspapers, medical journals and magazines;and appears regularly on national television and news programs advocating for a single-payer system.
PNHP is the only national physician organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to implementing a single-payer national health program.
