We seek to reduce the prevalence of chronic disease in the United States by 2020 by scaling sustainable health improvement and well-being solutions that empower all people to live better lives.
The Clinton Foundation works to improve the health and well-being of all people by activating individuals, communities, and organizations to make meaningful contributions to the health of others. The goals of this work are to reduce the prevalence of preventable health outcomes and close health inequity and disparity gaps by improving access to key contributors to health for all people. The Clinton Foundation achieves its goals through strategic cross-sector partnerships and by leveraging technology and digital innovation.
The Clinton Foundation has a proven track record leading institutions through systemic changes that serve to improve the health of their constituents and community members in multiple sectors, such as business, philanthropy, agriculture, education, nonprofit, and faith communities. With our sister initiative, the Alliance for a Healthier Generation, we have brokered and implemented voluntary agreements with leaders in the food, beverage, fitness, and health care industries to change the landscape of access to products and services that facilitate healthier lifestyles.
The Clinton Foundation uses the social determinants of health model to drive all of its work. This model suggests that an individual’s overall health is influenced by a constellation of factors, including healthcare quality and access, lifestyle behaviors, socioeconomic status, and access to a healthy environment.
