This grant supports Trust for America's Health (TFAH) in strengthening the nation's commitment to prevention and public health. To accomplish this, TFAH will build wide support for a strong public health system; advance a population-health perspective in the implementation of health reform; make the case for public health and prevention; and expand the advocacy base of the prevention movement. As part of these efforts, TFAH will conduct policy analysis, host consensus-building convenings, produce timely issue reports, and use strategic communications and a range of advocacy tactics. Deliverables will include: (1) development, dissemination, and policy outreach related to three annual reports, at least two issue briefs, and Healthier America 2012, a blueprint document for the next presidential term; (2) ongoing coordination with public health leaders, advocates and partners on advocacy priorities and activities; and (3) ongoing policy and media-relations activities to increase federal support for public health and prevention. TFAH will not use Robert Wood Johnson Foundation dollars for lobbying.
