Alliance of Minority Medical Associations Company Profile

22:54 EST 11th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Alliance of Minority Medical Associations (AMMA) is a collaborative effort of the Asian and Pacific Physicians' Association (APPA), the Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP), and the National Medical Association (NMA). Our coalition was formed on the basis of evidence-based data that highlight significant disparities in health care treatment plans and outcomes among many underserved populations within the United States. The AMMA collectively supports the moral imperative that all individuals are equally entitled to receive high quality health care therapies that can improve and prolong life. Although our efforts focus on eliminating disparities in access to health care and quality of health care for the more than 82 million United States citizens that we collectively serve, we believe that the health needs of all underserved Americans benefit from our collaboration. To that end, the AMMA has established the following goals: (a) to eliminate racial/ethnic disparities in health in the US, (b) to increase the quality of health care and access to health care for minority populations, and (c) to provide leadership to develop private/public partnerships in minority communities to eliminate health disparities.
