Finding the returns for business in community health

Share this:

Here’s a project aimed at making the business case for community health.

This involves a call for proposals (CFP), led by a partnership of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AcademyHealth. The CFP, open through June 14,  seeks to answer questions related to making the business case for improving  the health of communities where companies  employ people or otherwise do business.

The aim is to fund research that builds not only the evidence base for how private-sector investment can help build a culture of community health, but also what returns businesses receive from this investment so that employers, out of enlightened self-interest, will participate more in improving such important factors in  regional  health as education, the environment and transportation.
