Focus On Children and Families - GIH Skip Navigation

Children and Families

There is much work to be done to ensure that every child has a bright future. Health philanthropy is interested in a broad array of issues affecting the health and wellness of children and their families, from the perinatal period to early childhood, through the school-aged years, and on into adulthood. GIH designs programming that highlights the unmet needs of children and families as well as philanthropic strategies to address those needs.

Contact Osula Rushing for more information about our programming in this area.

Issue Spotlight

October 2017

Congress’s deadline to reauthorize funding for the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) was September 30, yet lawmakers have still not guaranteed funding for coverage for the 9 million children in the state-administered program. In a new To the Point post on The Commonwealth Fund’s website, Sara Rosenbaum of George Washington University explains that states are now unsure whether they can enroll new children, or even continue to cover the children and pregnant women already in the program.
