People experiencing adverse social, economic, and environmental conditions are more likely to develop costly and preventable health conditions. Unfortunately, the services and supports designed to improve these conditions are often disconnected from medical services and public health programs tasked with improving health. Better aligning the social services and supports with the public health and medical care sectors is important for promoting health equity across all communities so everyone in our diverse society can lead healthier lives for generations to come.
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF)’s Systems for Action program is offering up to four awards of $500,000 each for research on how to better align and coordinate medical, social, and public health services. All proposals should include a focus on health equity, by examining how better aligning systems can ensure everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full health potential.
