Better Health Through Better Philanthropy: Our Work Continues
April 4, 2017
Major changes to the landscape of American health care are taking shape before our eyes. Upcoming decisions related to health insurance coverage, immigration, environmental protections, and other federal, state, and local policies will all affect the health and wellness of our families, friends, and communities—especially those who are the focus of health philanthropy.
GIH is responding to this dynamic situation in several ways. Guided by our mission and values, we are helping funders adapt to the changing policy landscape, we are continuing to focus on health equity and the broader social environment that affects health and health care, we are forging closer working relationships with our allies and partners, and we are identifying entry points for fruitful public-private partnerships.
At GIH, we believe in better health through better philanthropy. We have an unwavering commitment to improving the health of all people, especially in vulnerable communities. There is much work to do to assure improved health across our nation, including expanding access to comprehensive, affordable health care. In the coming year, which marks our 35th anniversary, we look forward to working with health funders and our philanthropic partners to achieve this goal.
