The US Department of Health and Human Services is dedicated to ensuring the health and well being of the US population. Our Agency, the Health Resources and Services Administration is particularly focused on ensuring access to quality healthcare for the low income and underserved populations of the nation. The Center for Quality works to assist HRSA-supported organizations like community health centers, HIV AIDs clinics, rural hospitals and others to sustain and systematically improve the quality of healthcare provided to the patients we serve.
HRSA serves the low income and underserved populations of the United States. There are approximately 45 million uninsured people in the United States -- our programs reach about 20 million people. We also provide technical assistance and support to international organizations, including, for example, assistance to African nations on HIV AIDS.
