NHPPA In The Media


The NHPPA has been in existence since 2008. In that time, and with your help, we have grown from a grass roots movement to become internationally recognized and quoted. Our copyrighted materials have crossed the globe and our experts have become sought-after interviewees by media who choose to look beneath surface and spin.

It is easy for abstract issues such as ours to be rejected by mainstream media, among the noise of competing stories. Our message is  controversial, complex and requires journalists to rethink the healthcare paradigm. We would like to acknowledge those media representatives who have understood the importance of constitutional freedom.

We thank you for your tireless pursuit of the truth and also for the integrity with which you have covered these issues.
