The Delta Health Alliance

About DHA

Delta Health Alliance is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that is changing health care and education in the Mississippi Delta by improving access to health services, promoting healthier lifestyles, and expanding educational opportunities.

Delta Health Alliance has been a leader in supporting and operating community-based clinics that serve as a medical home for patients; implementing new technologies such as electronic health records, health information exchange networks, and tele-health diagnosis and treatment centers; managing innovative education programs in community settings; and creating robust home visitation programs that address neo-natal and early childhood education challenges.

We seek to understand the fundamental causes of poor health and lack of education opportunity in our region through comprehensive research programs and statistical analysis of relevant data. We support programs that are built on the latest findings from the science, medicine, and public health fields. We do our work through community partners, recognizing that long-lasting change only occurs when it originates in and is supported by the communities they serve. We regularly assess the performance of our programs on the basis of objective data that is produced and recorded as part of these projects.

Our major funding partners have included the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Agriculture, Mississippi Department of Health, Mississippi Division of Medicaid, Mississippi Department of Human Services, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, United Healthcare Foundation, Monsanto Corporation, Save the Children, and Delta Regional Authority. Our headquarters in Stoneville, Mississippi often serves as a center for community-based collaborative programs and educational initiatives for partnering agencies and residents of the Delta.
