At the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, we believe that good health and health care are fundamental measures of our success as a nation.In support of this belief, we fund program and policy initiatives in four areas which are each critical to health equity—enabling everyone in our nation to live a healthier life:
- Health Systems
- Healthy Children, Healthy Weight
- Healthy Communities
- Health Leadership
Our grants and grant programs generally have three aims:
- Discover and Explore—Seeking creative solutions through targeted solicitations and an ongoing request for bold ideas with transformative potential.
- Spread Model Interventions—Identifying and expanding public policies, community-based programs, system changes and other interventions that are having a meaningful impact on health.
- Conduct Research and Evaluation—Expanding the evidence around key health issues, and evaluating, learning from, and sharing key lessons both from our own grantmaking and from other health-improvement initiatives tied to our areas of interest.
