Close the Coverage Gap

Theory of Change

In 2016, the REACH Foundation began implementation of a five-year strategic plan with a revised Theory of Change that built on the foundation's longstanding interest in health care coverage, access and quality. The Theory of Change details our strategic focus, target populations, barriers we seek to address and preliminary indicators of effectiveness.
