A person’s health is influenced by a complex mix of social determinants including housing, environment, nutrition, economic status, employment, education, and more. Each of these factors must be considered to reduce disparities and improve the health and well-being of all.
Building on our successful U.S. healthy communities portfolio, we now design global initiatives that integrate policy, systems, and environmental changes through wide-ranging projects that promote health and work to prevent disease where people live, learn, work, and play.
We collaborate with government agencies at all levels, community groups, and individuals to drive initiatives that focus on the broader health needs of communities. Our approach is to build coalitions across sectors and bring a public health perspective to projects outside the sector.
