Public Policy and Advocacy Strategies

Public policy engagement is a key strategy for ensuring sustainable improvements in population health. As a result, health philanthropy plays a vital and unique role in the public policy process. GIH works to build understanding between health grantmakers and policymakers, and supports grantmakers in their efforts to advance policy change.

Issue Spotlight

July 2018

On March 26, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross added a citizenship question to the 2020 census. The inclusion of the new question has been challenged in court on the grounds that it could cause many immigrants to avoid the 2020 census out of fear their information could be used against them, even though it is illegal to share a person’s census responses with law enforcement or immigration agencies. The Commerce Department is accepting public comments on the census, including the addition of the citizenship question, until August 7, 2018.
