Support for Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health (MATCH)

One goal of Project MATCH (Mobilizing Action Toward Community Health) is to release three annual report cards, based on population health metrics, in all 50 states as catalysts to improve health and reduce health disparities. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation believes that the reports for all 3,000 U.S. counties will spur community leaders to improve health rankings for their communities. Deliverables will include: health rankings for the years 2009, 2010 and 2011; Web-based technical assistance to all states each year in preparing the release of the county reports; a report describing multisector partnership models for population health improvement; a report assessing financial and governance models that might be tested in multisector demonstration programs designed to improve health outcomes and reduce health costs; and a Web site devoted to providing tools and resources for population health improvement.
