L.A.Health4All is a coalition of organizations representing hundreds of thousands of Los Angeles County residents working together to strengthen our county health safety-net infrastructure in order to improve the quality of health care and increase access for the remaining uninsured.



VISION

All People living in Los Angeles County will have access to and a voice in the development of quality healthcare including the remaining uninsured regardless of legal status.

Guiding Principels

Collaboration
We communicate and work as a team, and we partner with the community to solve problems.1

Open Communication
We undertake to be open, honest and accountable in our relationships with everyone we work with and with each other.1

Consensus
We will strive to reach consensus in all decisions.

Transparency
We are communicative about any actions or campaigns planned outside of the coalition but directly relating to LA Health 4 All’s vision in order to present an image of solidarity to decision makers, stakeholders, and consumers.

Organizational Autonomy
We encourage member organizations to engage in work that supports the coalition’s vision and to see the coalition as a source of support. The intent of the principle of transparency is not to restrict or discourage member organizations from pursuing actions and campaigns on their own, but to maximize the coalition’s strengths and efficacy.

Fiscal Integrity
We will only accept funding that does not compromise our ability to address issues freely, thoroughly and objectively.2
