APRA was established to provide a voice for consumers in our healthcare system, to create a movement for fair, safe, transparent health care and to provide a resource for people who wish to protect themselves and their family from preventable physical and financial harm when they seek medical care.


To provide the leadership, education and advocacy for the right of healthcare consumers to receive safe, fair and transparent medical services and goods.


Medical care for all that is free of preventable harm. ​

APRA reflects the desire to close the gap between the health care we have and the health care we deserve by fighting the runaway corporate greed which too often denies patients fair and safe treatment, or any treatment at all, causing preventable harm to so many and to our country.
