Pennsylvania Health Law Project Logo

Pennsylvania Health Law Project

As PHLP uncovers individuals’ barriers to healthcare, it uses this information as it monitors and analyzes proposed policy changes and legislation. PHLP then works with its clients and other advocates to push for policy and program changes to improve access to healthcare for people with disabilities, and other low-income populations. .

FISA Foundation is so proud of our grantees and partners who are working to improve the lives of women, girls and people with disabilities every day.
