Clinton Health Matters Initiative
Every action, every pledge made with the Clinton Health Matters Initiative has the potential to help people in your community, and across all of our communities, to lead healthier lives.
Health Matters Criteria for Taking Action
As an effective Clinton Health Matters Initiative collaborator, together our measures of success will lead to a reduction in the prevalence of preventable disease, a reduction in health care costs associated with preventable disease, and an increase in well-being indicators across the United States.
Pledges to helping people live healthier lives can be made at any time.
Please email HealthMatters@clintonfoundation.org with any questions you have about making a pledge.
Established measures of success for Clinton Health Matters Initiative pledges follow the Clinton Foundation’s model for commitments and will demonstrate impact on one or more of the following:
- An increase in the number of individuals who are able to take meaningful action to contribute to the health and well-being of others
- An improvement of key preventable disease measures and health and well-being indicators
- A reduction in health care costs associated with preventable disease in targeted communities
- A positive economic impact that contributes to the health and well-being of others
Specific actions articulate a desired outcome and approach to tackling a specific problem, have clear and feasible objectives within a defined period of time, and incorporate an effective approach to implementation.
Clinton Health Matters Initiative (CHMI) pledges to action possess four key tenets to ensure our shared success:
- Any pledge to action made through CHMI must be able to demonstrate impact against our established measures of success.
- Any pledge to action made through CHMI must provide added value to the current landscape of organizations and individuals involved.
- Any pledge to action made through CHMI must be evidence-based. New action can involve new approaches, while others draw on promising solutions that can be scaled up or replicated and need to add value to current efforts.
- Any pledge to action made must be measurable. Measurable results are necessary to achieve the ultimate end goal of transforming the health of communities for the better. Pledge makers will provide regular progress and evaluation reports that demonstrate impact and will thus inspire further action on improving domestic health outcomes.
