Good health is the bedrock of prosperity. It allows individuals to make the most of the opportunities presented to them, and it fuels the nation’s economic growth. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation is dedicated to building a society where attaining the best health possible is a fundamental and guiding social value that helps define American culture. In a Culture of Health, promoting health is as important as treating illness, high-quality health care is available to everyone where and when they need it, and the health of all of our children is a matter of fact and not a matter of chance. Just as importantly, in a Culture of Health, every community in the country is prepared for, actively preventing, and ready to respond to health incidents quickly, effectively, and collaboratively. In so doing, communities will serve and protect every individual while fostering a healthy and resilient nation.
