We fund sound, objective analysis to help expand the evidence in our fields of interest, identify gaps and opportunities, and set targets and goals. We evaluate our programs to determine what is working, what isn’t and why.
We explore cutting-edge ideas in health and health care—as well as in other fields and industries. We also learn from promising models and approaches from other countries that could be adapted to work in the United States.
We report key insights from our successes and failures, and engage in frank dialogue with our grantees and other experts. Together, we determine how best to achieve a meaningful impact, and ensure our strategies remain effective as the nation’s health challenges continue to evolve.
