The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation has worked over the past year, in collaboration with the RAND Corporation, to develop a Framework and set of Measures that support a national strategy and movement to Build a Culture of Health. One research question drove the development of a framework and set of 41 national measures: "What is holding our nation back from the health and health equity that we aspire to?" As a nation we are not addressing the interdependence of the many social, economic, physical, environmental, and spiritual factors of health and well-being. Measures that motivate achieving equity in health and well-being outcomes across the nation are the principle objectives of RWJF and other researchers.
