Where you live 

shouldn't dictate the quality of your healthcare



The National Alliance against Disparities in Patient Health (NADPH) is a nonprofit, health research organization applying scientific research and technology, community education and outreach, and advocacy to reduce health disparities and improve public health outcomes for our Nation. NADPH operates through a National partnership ecosystem that spans Government, Academic, Nonprofit, and Industry allies.


NADPH’s major objective is to Bridge the Gap in access to advanced, precision-based healthcare in underserved and under-resourced communities. NADPH seeks to do this by providing access to information, subject matter experts, and technology that help community members:

1) raise their awareness and education about the array of factors impacting their quality of health and healthcare;

2) capture, manage, and understand their health information across its various domains, and

3) use this increased knowledge and access more actionably to make better decisions about their health and healthcare.
