Population Health

Population Health icon

For Georgia to continue to grow and thrive, we need a healthy population. Improving the health of all Georgians means placing an intentional focus on public health and prevention. Georgians for a Healthy Future supports a strong public health system and the adoption of evidence-based practices that improve health outcomes. Our work in this area ranges from advocating for policies that will reduce smoking to providing education about the availability of preventive services to advocating for more investment in our state's public health infrastructure. Georgians for a Healthy Future also supports the establishment of an All Payer Claims Database in Georgia to help advocates, stakeholders, and policymakers better understand disease prevalence, health care utilization, and other information about the health of our state's population.

“Georgians for a Healthy Future celebrates today's Supreme Court ruling that rejected yet another challenge to the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While we were disappointed to see such a frivolous lawsuit endure as long as it did, we are hopeful that this will be the last attempt to overturn the law that has provided quality, affordable coverage to hundreds of thousands of Georgians."
