As we near the end of 2022, we are looking back at all that we have accomplished... and how this work sets the stage to continue our organizing into 2023.


Throughout this challenging year PNHP-NY Metro has been working tirelessly to advance health equity. To revisit just a few of our accomplishments this year:

  • During our annual Lobby Day, we coordinated thirteen delegations that met with New York State Senators and Assembly Members in support of the New York Health Act, working with the Campaign for New York Health throughout the year to maintain public pressure on the legislature to pass this vital bill.
  • We met with nine of our national legislators to discuss the most recent Medicare privatization scheme: ACO-REACH. This superficial rebranding of the Direct Contracting program intentionally misleads people by using language to align itself with the Accountable Care Organizations established under the Affordable Care Act, when in reality it’s a nonconsensual transition of seniors into managed care programs.
  • Facing the repeal of Roe, we joined with millions of people across the country to demonstrate against the draconian court ruling and to demand reproductive autonomy and abortion rights.
    We rallied at Lincoln Hospital in recognition of the Bronx community’s legacy of fierce health advocacy, and once again marched for Queer Liberation, in rejection of nation-wide attacks on trans rights, and in celebration of our LGBTQ family. At every opportunity we work to build support for the NY Health Act, which will be an unprecedented expansion of rights and care, providing comprehensive healthcare including abortion and gender affirming care for all in NY state, without financial or other barriers.

Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP) is a single-issue organization advocating a universal, comprehensive single-payer national health program. PNHP has 22,000 members and over 50 chapters across the United States.

Since 1987, we've advocated for reform in the U.S. health care system. We educate physicians and other health professionals about the benefits of a single-payer system--including fewer administrative costs and affording health insurance for the 30 million Americans who have none.

Our members and physician activists work toward a single-payer national health program in their communities. PNHP performs ground breaking research on the health crisis and the need for fundamental reform, coordinates speakers and forums, participates in town hall meetings and debates, contributes scholarly articles to peer-reviewed medical journals, and appears regularly on national television and news programs advocating for a single-payer system.

PNHP is the only national physician organization in the United States dedicated exclusively to implementing a single-payer national health program.
