About

Welcome to Idaho Primary Care Association

Vision
Healthy Idahoans living in healthy communities.

Mission
To promote and support vibrant, effective community health centers in providing accessible, affordable, and high quality healthcare to all Idahoans.


Since 1983, the Idaho Primary Care Association (IPCA) has been the leading state advocate for community-based health care programs. The association plays a vital role in educating federal, state and local policy makers about issues relating to health care and the role of community health centers. The IPCA also provides training and technical assistance to Idaho's community health centers in the areas of community development, quality improvement, workforce development and health center operations.

We work hard to provide partnerships with a variety of federal, regional and state partners, including the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), Bureau of Primary Care; the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC); the Northwest Regional Primary Care Association (NWRPCA); and the state of Idaho's Department of Health and Welfare.

Idaho Primary Care Association's location in Boise, Idaho's capital city, provides fast access to Idaho's legislative body, the Governor's Office, and the Department of Health and Welfare for issues affecting community health centers and their patients.
