Trust for America's Health Initiatives

Health Reform Implementation

Health Reform Implementation

America should strive to be the healthiest nation in the world. Every American should have the opportunity to be as healthy as he or she can be. Every community should be safe from threats to its health. And all individuals and families should have a high level of services that protect, promote, and preserve their health, regardless of who they are or where they live.

That's why Trust for America's Health is leading the Healthier America Project. More than 140 organizations have joined together to support a consensus document entitled, "Our Vision for a Healthier America." The Healthier America Project will advance that vision, harnessing the ideas and experience of people from every level of government in partnership with business and community leaders, and establish a blueprint for how to modernize the public health system.
