Project Access New Haven (PA-NH) is the story of a community coming together to serve its neighbors in need. In the summer of 2008, members of the New Haven County Medical Association partnered with local community organizations to explore and address the problem of the expanding number of people without health insurance.
With significant input from community members representing the uninsured, the PA-NH program was tailored to the specific needs of New Haven residents. Project Access consists of doctors, nurses, hospitals, businesses, community organizations and patients all working toward a healthier community via timely access to necessary medical care.
Project Access New Haven would not exist without the vital and sustained support of the New Haven community. It is our community partners who have most eloquently articulated the problems that so many of our residents face accessing high quality medical care, as they see the glaring disparities in our health care system every day.
Many of these organizations have been a voice for universal health care and reform for years, advocating relentlessly for equal access to high quality affordable care.
