The right to know: It’s a concept that underpins all journalism, and nowhere is it more important than in health care and medicine. Patients have a right to know what will keep them healthy and what will make them sick. Citizens have a right to know how effectively their government protects and serves those who depend on it.

Through its Right to Know Committee, AHCJ advocates for openness and provides resources for members striving to shed light on complex topics.
