ACHI was envisioned as an organization dedicated to change—change that leads to improved health for all Arkansans. While we have made positive strides in changing Arkansas’s health environment, our work is far from finished. Ongoing activities as well as historical successes are described in Our Work.

As our nation and state undergo dramatic and rapid shifts, ACHI is committed to adapting to these changing opportunities and challenges and works to keep you up to date on the latest news and events that impact the health of Arkansans. Please visit our News & Events page for the most recent information that affects our policy work.

ACHI’s activities are centered in three Areas of Focus that influence the health of Arkansans— population health policy, access to quality care, and health care system transformation — with supporting infrastructure of health data and research.

Links to our numerous policy issue briefs, reports, and research briefs, along with tools for those working to combat childhood obesity can be found in the Resource Library.
