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.
