This annual anthology of original articles about RWJF grants and programs captures and conveys the experiences, findings and lessons learned from a wide selection of the programs that we fund, which tackle some of today's most critical health care issues.
The series reflects the Foundation's commitment to sharing knowledge resulting from our grantmaking with those who can use and benefit from it. Written for policy-makers and practitioners, as well as interested members of the public, the Anthology series offers valuable lessons for leaders and educators developing plans for the coming years.
In this issue of the Anthology, the authors provide some lessons learned from a number of Foundation initiatives, including substance abuse, increasing access to care, improving services for people with chronic illnesses, its support of the media, and a look back at some of the Foundation's earlier programs and their impact on health and health care.
