  • Pathways Out of Poverty: Exploring New Directions for Health Funders
    November 16, 2007
    The links between poverty and poor health are undeniable, yet complex.

This portfolio, prepared for GIH's 2007 Fall Forum, provides information and resources to help grantmakers learn about how health intersects with poverty, education, employment, the environment, housing, and criminal justice and how partnering with these sectors can affect public policy at local, state, and national levels.

  • Health and Fiscal Policy
    November 30, 2004
    Given the amount of public expenditures devoted to health and concerns about the impact of changes in public policy on the nation's most vulnerable residents, health grantmakers need to understand existing state and federal policies affecting revenues and expenditures and the implications of any changes on the table. They can also play an important role in the development and implementation of these policies.
