Boston Alliance for Community Health (BACH)

BACH (CHNA-19) is a city-wide coalition that coordinates public health planning and programming throughout Boston. It is comprised of twelve neighborhood coalitions working together with hospitals and health centers, non-profit organizations, and government agencies to improve the overall health of their residents. BACH focuses on the social determinants of health: life enhancing resources that greatly impact health status such as access to health care and health resources, food supply, job opportunities, safety, education, housing, and transportation.
