Philanthropic Strategies to Advance Health in All Policies

Monday, November 2, 2015: 8:30 a.m. - 10:00 a.m.
Health in All Policies (HiAP) is an emerging approach to public health policymaking, grounded in the recognition that the most important determinants of health are outside the reach of the formal health care system. The HiAP approach calls for decisionmakers in all relevant policy sectors and at all levels of government to cooperate in addressing complex health challenges and to consider the prospective impact of their decisions on health-related outcomes, benefits, harms, and costs. Through a moderated discussion with leaders from health foundations that are pursuing improved public health through indirect channels outside the formal health sector, this session will explore strategies that health grantmakers are funding to advance the HiAP approach. We will look at the underlying motivation for and experience with strategies including: statewide task forces; health impact assessments; and community-wide efforts mobilized through partnerships with non-traditional health actors. The session will also consider the successes and lessons learned in using these strategies and other catalytic roles funders can play.
Session Objectives: Identify three health grantmakers who are supporting the HiAP approach. Discuss three strategies health grantmakers are funding to advance the HiAP approach. List successes and lessons learned in implementing this approach.
