Alliance for a Healthier SC
The Alliance for a Healthier South Carolina is a coalition of more than 50 executive leaders from diverse organizations across the state working together to ensure that all people in South Carolina have the opportunity to have healthier bodies, minds, and communities while reducing the future cost of care.
The Alliance was created because of the economic, racial and geographic disparities in our state that make it hard for many children and adults to live healthy lives, and the fact that, although many organizations exist for improving health and healthcare in South Carolina, their efforts aren’t often as coordinated as they could be which can result in fragmented, duplicative activities that don’t always achieve the best results.
Between 2010 and 2013 a group of senior leaders from academia, businesses, consumers, providers, philanthropy, insurance, government, and policy groups became increasingly aware of the several successful but uncoordinated efforts targeted at impacting diverse aspects of health in the state and saw promise in the development of coalitions that were trying to minimize duplication and maximize impact in specific health outcomes such as stroke and premature births.
These founding leaders decided to work with other leaders in the state to take collective responsibility for the health of all in the state through the creation of the South Carolina Health Coordinating Council, known today as the Alliance for a Healthier South Carolina.
SCHA serves as the organizational backbone of the Alliance and supports its efforts towards a better state of health for SC.
