This blog outlines findings from Aligning Systems for Health’s 2020 review of cross-sector alignment as well as noteworthy changes to the program’s design. Key documents, briefs, case studies, interviews, structured feedback, and other relevant information informed this first-round review of the Cross-Sector Alignment Theory of Change.
As intended at the project’s outset, the process of translating that learning led to a revised version, now called the Framework for Aligning Sectors. With each iteration, it is the team’s intent that the framework will be more and more evidence informed.
Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services, supported by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and managed by the Georgia Health Policy Center, is focused on learning from stakeholders across the nation about effective ways to align these three sectors to better meet people’s goals and needs.
