How can the health care, social services and public health systems work better together to reduce health disparities and contribute to an environment in which everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full health potential?
New research is urgently needed to discover and test novel strategies for aligning systems in ways that improve health and health equity.
Systems for Action, a signature research program of RWJF, is issuing a call for proposals to support rigorous testing of new ways to connect the nation’s fragmented medical, social, and public health systems. All proposals must test specific actions that an organization, network, or community undertakes to reduce fragmentation and improve coordination.
Researchers with underrepresented backgrounds, from disciplines outside of the health and medical science sectors and academic settings, and/or who have not previously received RWJF funding are encouraged to apply. Up to four awards of $500K are available.
