The Foundation's program, Consumer Voices for Coverage: Strengthening State Advocacy Networks to Expand Health Coverage, was designed to support state-based consumer health advocacy networks to increase their capacity to participate in health care reform efforts with key stakeholders, such as businesses, hospitals, insurers, providers and government officials.The purpose of this project is to build an integrated health care advocacy system to carry out effective public education efforts on the state and federal level to reform policies to expand health insurance coverage for all. This effort will involve the establishment and expansion of a consumer advocacy network, the development of grassroots leaders to build popular support statewide, the coordination of public education efforts around health reform policies to expand public and private options, and the development and implementation of a communication and media strategy.
