Primary Healthcare for All

Creating a more just and equitable healthcare system so
that every Arizonan has the opportunity to thrive

The Catalyst for Health in Arizona

The Arizona Alliance for Community Health Centers (the Alliance) is the Primary Care Association (PCA) for Arizona. We’re a nonprofit member organization that represents Community Health Centers (CHCs) — Arizona’s largest primary care network.

CHCs deliver healthcare services that meet the needs of their communities, connecting people to quality care that gives everyone an equal opportunity to thrive. We facilitate that vital work by providing CHCs with training, technical assistance, programmatic support, and advocacy.

Primary healthcare for all — because when people are healthy, communities flourish.

Training & Technical Assistance

Cultivating a forum for collaboration and growth

Our job at the Alliance is to ensure Community Health Centers and other safety-net providers have the support they need to meet patient needs, as well as anticipate and respond to the ever-evolving healthcare landscape. With ongoing training and technical assistance, the Alliance strengthens delivery of whole-person, quality, and affordable care that is the hallmark of Arizona’s Community Health Centers.

Programs & Advocacy

Increasing health equity and advancing the health center model

The Alliance connects Community Health Center staff with a robust collection of programs that equip them to optimize operations, leverage the latest in health information technology, and set a high bar for quality and outcomes. We’re also here to advocate for Arizona’s CHCs and the patients they serve. We partner with federal, state, and local agencies, and organizations serving the needs of CHC patients, build relationships with policy makers, and provide education for the media, and the general public.
