The mission of the New Mexico Alliance of Health Councils is to improve the health of all people living in New Mexico by supporting and strengthening county and tribal health councils, advocating for health equity, and by providing a strong voice for community and public health.
The New Mexico Alliance of Health Councils exists to support and strengthen the state’s county and tribal health councils. The health councils have provided community-based health planning and coordination in New Mexico since their creation in 1991.
In early 2011, the New Mexico Alliance of Health Councils was re-established with three goals:
Governance of the Alliance is by a Steering Committee, consisting of one representative from each health council, with an Executive Committee representing six regions (including a tribal representative) and three committees: Policy, Capacity-Building, and Resource Development. The Executive Committee conducts the ongoing business of the Alliance, while the Steering Committee meets once a year in person and quarterly by phone. The Alliance works closely with the New Mexico Health Equity Partnership, the New Mexico Department of Health, and other statewide entities, and serves as a support and communications hub for the state’s health councils.
