Global Ideas for U.S. Solutions
Learning from abroad to improve health and well-being in the United States
When it comes to health, good ideas have no borders.
To help everyone in our nation have the opportunity to live the healthiest life possible, we need the best ideas the world has to offer. That’s why the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is searching the globe for programs, policies and practices that might work in the United States.
When we look around the world—from Canada to Colombia, Belgium to Botswana, Italy to India—we see countries that have made progress in tackling the same kind of problems our nation is struggling with. We want to know: What is working well there that we might be able to apply here at home?
Whether the challenge is building healthy communities, keeping children healthy or transforming health care, these bright spots abroad bring inspiration and practical solutions for how to accelerate our nation’s progress toward a Culture of Health.
