Organizational snapshot

Headquartered in Alexandria, VA, the National Association of Free & Charitable Clinics (NAFC) was founded in 2001 by a group of grassroots medical providers and organizers who recognized that health care was not being provided at a local level to the working poor, uninsured and underinsured in our country in a way that was cost-effective, accessible and affordable.

NAFC's 1,400 Clinics and 110,000 volunteers are working to care for 2 million patients, mostly uninsured with nowhere else to turn. NAFC is also working to rapidly expand telehealth, testing and equipment, access to medication, and providing operational and technical assistance to their member clinics in the most vulnerable locations. 

Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
