Systems for Action (S4A) is a national signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) that builds a Culture of Health by rigorously testing new ways of connecting the nation’s fragmented medical, social, and public health systems. Studies conducted through the S4A program test innovative mechanisms for aligning the delivery and financing of these systems with a focus on estimating their impact on health and health equity. S4A uses a wide research lens that includes and extends beyond medical care and public health to incorporate other social service systems that affect health and well-being, such as housing, transportation, education, employment, food and nutrition assistance, child and family support, criminal and juvenile justice, and economic and community development.
The goal of this call for proposals (CFP) is to fund research that supports new scientific evidence on ways to optimize delivery and financing systems in ways that improve health and reduce inequities.
The application deadline is October 10, 2018. For more details and to apply, please visit the funding website.
