The National Academy for State Health Policy (NASHP) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization that supports state officials in developing and advancing health policy innovations. NASHP provides technical assistance, publishes research and analyses, and facilitates relationship-building and sharing of best practices across branches of state government. Guided by an academy of state health policymakers, NASHP identifies key policy opportunities and provides support in the form of policy academies and learning collaboratives on specific topics of interest, state-only convenings to exchange innovative strategies, national summits and conferences to connect cross-system federal and state leaders, and publications and tools that highlight state-level strategies to address pressing national health challenges.
