Our Vision

Strong healthy communities whose contributions are recognized by a society that fosters the health, well-being, and prosperity of all its members.

Our Mission: Best Health for All

We work to ensure that health incorporates the best of science, culture, and community. We achieve this by listening to the individual, investing in leading community based organizations, working with national partners, examining and improving the resources and systems available, and designing solutions to make health a part of each person’s life. We continually work to improve the quality of care and its availability to all.  


Our goal is to close the gaps in three key areas:

  • research, services, and policy;

  • scientific discovery and benefit for the individual; and,

  • community services and medical practice.
