The Northern Nevada Alliance for Health and Justice (NNAHJ), is a medical-legal partnership (MLP) that addresses health-harming civil legal needs at a community health clinic in Reno, Nevada. This MLP is a three-pronged approach to address health-harming civil legal issues. The NNAHJ provides legal consultation, direct legal representation, and community orientated legal education clinics. At first glance, the need for civil legal services at a health center may seem unnecessary; however, many legal problems can threaten stability and interfere with health outcomes. Identifying civil legal problems is not easy. This Public Health Echo will cover generally what are MLPs, the Northern Nevada Alliance for Health and Justice, and how to issue spot in habitability and landlord/tenant problems.
