HEAL California is your place for educational, informative and action-oriented resources in the fight for universal, single payer health care. We are committed to amplifying the voices of those who challenge the dysfunction in our healthcare system and promote solutions guaranteeing high-quality, affordable health care to everyone, regardless of income.

We are a non-profit, editorially independent news center focused on the California healthcare reform movement. We receive no advertising, corporate underwriting or government funding. HEAL California is a project of the California OneCare Education Fund.


Our board members – all volunteers – are dedicated to winning high-quality, affordable, comprehensive and fair healthcare for everyone.
