RWJF believes that achieving strong, lasting connections across the health care, public health, and social services systems helps build healthier and more equitable communities, contributing to a Culture of Health that provides everyone a fair and just opportunity for health and well-being.
For more than a decade, RWJF has funded research and programmatic efforts that bridge health care, public health, and social services in states and communities. The Foundation is building on these investments to advance long-term cross-sector alignment to better address the physical, social, and emotional needs of people and communities.
In 2019, RWJF announced a new national initiative, Aligning Systems for Health: Health Care + Public Health + Social Services, led by experts at the Georgia Health Policy Center, to explore and strengthen the evidence base around conditions that foster cross-sector alignment and develop practical guidance for action.
