AlignCare improves access to veterinary care for underserved families.


Educational opportunities for those in Animal Welfare, Social Work, and Veterinary Medicine


Completing community assessments, and gathering data on incremental veterinary care and economics of veterinary care

We believe all pets deserve access to veterinary care.

The Program for Pet Health Equity (PPHE) exists to improve access to veterinary care for pets and their families not adequately served by the current system. We promote and facilitate national collaborations and public policy development, to remove barriers to veterinary care. Our activities include education, service, and social and public health research.

PPHE is developing AlignCare, a One Health healthcare system that addresses the needs of people, their pets, and their ecosystem, which is largely defined by socioeconomics. AlignCare connects families with veterinary service providers while leveraging community resources and activities.
