ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Health Policy Review recently opened its archives to the public. The first fourteen published issues of Alaska Health Policy Review are now available online at the Alaska Health Policy Review Archives page, in full and free of charge.
The newly released issues include interviews with Senators Hollis French and Bettye Davis, Jerry Jenkins (Executive Director of Anchorage Community Mental Health Services), and others. Each issue offers feature articles such as a thorough analysis of Denali KidCare and an in-depth summary of Senate Bill 160: Mandatory Universal Health Care.
"The Alaska Health Policy Review Archives database is an extraordinary resource," says Editor Lawrence D. Weiss. "It's an absolutely unique collection of interviews with key policy makers and articles dealing with a wide range of health care matters. Whether you're a senator writing the laws or a parent worried about how to find your child a doctor, these archives offer a fascinating and informative record of health care in Alaska."
AHPR also tracks the life of bills, committee meetings and the Certificate of Need Program during the state legislative session.
The archive will be updated monthly, creating live links to all issues over a year old. To read archived copies, visit akhealthpolicy.org. In the right hand column, click on the link under the "Archives Open" heading and scroll down to the issue dates seen in blue.
Alaska Health Policy Review is produced and published by Alaska Center for Public Policy, a nonprofit organization committed to the development of public policy that benefits low- and medium-income families. AHPR is published monthly, except during the 90-day legislative session when it is published weekly in order to focus on bill tracking and analysis.
