School-Based Health Alliance
Vision: All children and adolescents are healthy and achieving at their fullest potential.
Mission: To improve the health status of children and youth by advancing and advocating for school-based health care.
Core Values: The School-Based Health Alliance believes that: o Children and adolescents need high quality, accessible, culturally competent, comprehensive health care. o The school setting is a sensible and appropriate place to deliver health care because that is where the students are. o Ideally, the full scope of services is provided directly in a SBHC; alternative models may be dictated by resources and the needs of the community. o SBHCs reduce health inequities and improve health outcomes for underserved youth. o SBHCs should be fairly reimbursed for the high-quality health services they provide.
