The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
“At RWJF, we are working to build a national Culture of Health. Our goal is to help raise the health of everyone in the United States to the level that a great nation deserves, by placing well-being at the center of every aspect of life. We are very aware that achieving this will take unprecedented collaboration—a movement for better health. At the same time, we also know we are far from alone in our belief that everyone should have the opportunity to lead a healthier life. And by working alongside many others, we can bring about meaningful change, now and for generations to come.”
how rwjf works
Through the use of grant programs, RWJF engages with policymakers, business leaders, community groups and others to make it easier for the people to become healthy and stay healthy.
In order to understand America’s health challenges better and identify new approaches to bring a better change to the community, they contribute to the funding of research. They also evaluate and draw lessons from not only their programs, but from work others have done in the past.
The central focus on RWJF is to build a national Culture of Health, however there aren’t many others who believe that everyone should have the opportunity to gain a longer and more healthier life.
