Public Health Leadership Forum
The Public Health Leadership Forum, funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, is an ongoing platform to engage a diverse set of public health leaders and stakeholders in dialogue on current challenges to public health and opportunities for transformation in the field.
The Forum has undertaken several major initiatives, including:
- Developing a Financing System to Support Public Health Infrastructure
- Partnering with the Health Care Transformation Task Force (HCTTF) to develop a framework for enhancing collaboration between public health and health care organizations: Partnering to Catalyze Comprehensive Community Wellness: An Actionable Framework for Health Care and Public Health Collaboration
- Defining and constituting a set of foundational public health services (made up of foundational capabilities and areas, building on the IOM’s “minimum package” concept) for all governmental public health departments.
- Visioning and articulating what a high achieving governmental health department will be doing differently in the year 2020.
- The Federal Public Health Enterprise initiative developed a vision and associated ideas for shaping the role of the federal government as a strategic partner and as the nation’s Chief Health Strategist, and to collectively advance a common public health agenda for the new Administration taking office in 2017.
