AMCHP's policy and advocacy work is guided by AMCHP's Board of Directors and our Legislative and Health Care Finance Committee comprised of AMCHP members and partners. AMCHP's Strategic Plan includes developing an implementing an annual legislative and policy agenda. This agenda specifies where we will devote our advocacy resources and highlights key policy and advocacy activities for AMCHP.
With all that we could do to support state MCH programs and provide national leadership on issues affecting women, children, and families, we use this agenda to make explicit what we will do in terms of advocacy on an annual basis. Tier 1 priorities are items for which AMCHP will play a lead role. Tier 2 priorities are items for which AMCHP will work in partnership to support. Tier 3 priorities are items that are important to AMCHP, things that we will monitor, and areas that may develop into future Tier 1 or Tier 2 items.
