The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's
(RWJF) mission is to improve the health and health care
of all Americans. Remaining faithful to our mission means keeping
our commitment to the American people in everything we do from
encouraging healthier living and the conditions that promote
better health to promoting positive changes in the way health
care is delivered in this country.
In our first three decades, we will have provided
more than $4 billion to organizations and institutions across the
country working on finding solutions to our nation's health and
health care problems. This sounds like a substantial sum, but compare
it to the nearly $3 billion that the United States spends on health
care every day.
The projects we fund have reached across the
lifespan, from making early child health care more accessible to
improving the care that patients receive at the end of life. Our
strategies transcend any single perspective; we and our grantees
explore many possible solutions. Our greatest strength must be
in recognizing the good ideas of others and in developing our own.
The common element in all our work is its reflection
of the Foundation's mission: to improve the health and health care
of all Americans.
