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—disease prevention health promotion, access to
quality care, and health care financing—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.
