Our Mission:

To improve the health and reduce the burden of illness for the people of New Hampshire – especially the vulnerable and underserved.

Our Vision: Good Health and Realized Potential for All

New Hampshire's prosperity depends on healthy people, strong families and vibrant communities. We envision a culture that supports the physical, mental and social well-being of all people -- through every stage of life.

We define health broadly: "Health is the state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being – not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." (World Health Organization)

What do we mean when we speak of New Hampshire's people? As a foundation, we address the needs of specific populations and communities rather than the needs of individuals. We have both a local and a state-wide focus as we work to improve health care systems that will benefit vulnerable and underserved residents in our state.
