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.

Anthony Iton, Senior Vice President, Healthy Communities at The California Endowment calls for increased civic engagement to advance health and justice.
The Kansas Health Foundation has awarded grants to ten organizations throughout the state to build capacity to address health disparities. Grantees will work to build long-term partnerships with one another and KHF to strengthen the health equity movement in Kansas. While the nature of the work varies by grantee, all emphasize implementing advocacy strategies targeting grassroots organizing, coalition building, or policy change initiatives.
