The philanthropic community has examined access from many angles, seeking to break down barriers created by costs, culture, geography, system structure, and differing notions about who and what should be covered by both public and private insurance. In this era of health reform, GIH is working to inform and connect health funders who are interested in ensuring that vulnerable people with problems accessing the health care system are able to get the care they need.
