As a coalition, Partners for Better Care (PBC) members work to influence policy aimed at making health care more cost-efficient, transparent and fair. Our members are leaders in their field—supporting patients by serving their communities and successfully advocating on their behalf.
PBC’s members—AIDS United, American Liver Foundation, Amputee Coalition, Autism Speaks, Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, The diaTribe Foundation, Genentech, Hemophilia Federation of America, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The MAGIC Foundation, The Michael J. Fox Foundation, National Down Syndrome Society, National Multiple Sclerosis Society, National Organization for Rare Disorders, National Patient Advocate Foundation, Novo Nordisk, Obesity Action Coalition and United Cerebral Palsy—all bring to the initiative strong and effective patient advocacy leadership.
Partners for Better Care members represent millions of Americans living with debilitating diseases and conditions, as well as the families who support them. Many individuals and families coping with a chronic or life-threatening condition live paycheck to paycheck, leading them to question when their health is “bad enough” to justify the costs of treatment. The PBC members facilitate necessary advocacy for those in need based on the experiences of the communities they represent, and go a step beyond to advocate for patient-centered quality care for all. Partners for Better Care proposes solutions to improve health care access for everyone.
