The principal purposes for which the Rural Health Coalition was created are: 

  • To establish a planning entity supporting the development and implementation of rural health policy in New Hampshire
  • To favorably affect the health status of all residents served in rural environments of New Hampshire through promotion of rural health issues
  • To meet the challenges of an ever changing health care environment by assuring rural New Hampshire residents access to care from essential community providers through rural community care networks operating on a cooperative basis within the meaning of Section 1381 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986.
