Health Reform

Health reform involves extending insurance coverage and restructuring the health care delivery system to focus on prevention and primary care, reducing costs, and improving quality. Foundations are well positioned to help by educating consumers, supporting state implementation, transforming the safety net, expanding the health care workforce, and supporting innovations for high-cost patients.

In 2010 GIH established the GIH Health Reform Resource Center Fund, which allows GIH to increase staff resources and programming in order to inform and connect funders supporting work related to health reform.
