The Health Resources and Services Administration, also known as HRSA, is an agency operating within the United States Department of Health and Human Services that is primarily responsible for improving the public's access to quality health care services, especially for those who are uninsured, isolated, and medically challenged.

The goal of the HRSA is to improve future health outcomes, enhance the quality of health care in the country, improve access to health care services, eradicate health disparities, improve the overall services provided by public health and non-public health care systems, hone the ability of the health care system to appropriately respond to health care emergencies, and attain excellence in health care managament practices.
