Health In All Policies

Health in all Policies icon

There is a growing recognition that factors outside the formal health system such as education, housing, economic opportunity, and transportation can impact the health of individuals, families, and communities. To make inroads in improving population health, we need to look “upstream” at social determinants of health in addition to factors within the health system such as coverage, access to care, and health care value. In 2016, Georgians for a Healthy Future is launching a new project to bring together stakeholders and advocates from across sectors to identify promising policy initiatives that can address social determinants of health. We’ll add additional information and resources to this page as the initiative progresses.
