Health Reform

Health reform involves extending insurance coverage and restructuring the health care delivery system to focus on prevention and primary care, reduce costs, and improve 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. The fund allows GIH to increase staff resources and programming in order to inform and connect funders sponsoring work related to health reform, and to provide sound, strategic, and actionable information to funders in a timely fashion.

Contact Ann McMillan for more information about our programming in this area.
