Health care is a human right. Our mission is to educate and advocate for health care reform in order to achieve guaranteed, high quality, comprehensive and equally accessible care for all.
While the California Physicians Alliance supports efforts to help all people obtain health care, we work to establish a publicly financed, non-profit single-payer health care system in California and the nation.
We were founded in 1987 as California Physicians Alliance (CaPA) with the goal of promoting progressive change in health care at the state and national levels. From 1993 to July 2016, CaPA also was the California chapter of Physicians for a National Health Program. That affiliation agreement has now been dissolved, and the California Physicians Alliance has returned to using its original name.
