The Coalition champions the development and implementation of policies that address the social determinants of health, lower healthcare costs and improve health outcomes. 

Lifting our voice in common cause.

The Root Cause Coalition brings a unique voice when engaging with leaders and lawmakers. Unlike the countless competing viewpoints fighting to be heard by elected officials, TRCC’s strength lies in a diverse membership that serves communities and individuals across several points along the care continuum. No one interest comes before our common goal of reconstructing a healthcare system that addresses the social determinants of health to achieve health equity.

To achieve this goal, TRCC as outlined an 8-Point Call to Action to Achieve by 2025. Our advocacy committee is deeply involved in developing TRCC’s policy agenda and selecting existing efforts for formal support.
