Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a nonprofit organization of 18,000 physicians, medical students, and health professionals who support single-payer national health insurance. PNHP-NY Metro is one of over 40 chapters across the country.
- PNHP believes that access to high-quality health care is a right of all people and should be provided equitably as a public service rather than bought and sold as a commodity.
- PNHP educates physicians, other health workers, and the general public on the need for a comprehensive, high-quality, publicly-funded health care program, equitably-accessible to all residents of the United States.
- PNHP views this campaign as part of the campaign for social justice in the United States; opposing for-profit control, and especially corporate control, of the health system in favor of democratic control, public administration, and single-payer financing.
