Atlantic has worked for many years so that all people, no matter where they live or their socioeconomic status, can access affordable quality healthcare. Much of our grantmaking to achieve health equity has concentrated on leadership development—helping to identify, connect and prepare a generation of young leaders committed to driving systemic change in health care systems and practices. To enable this work to continue beyond Atlantic’s years, in late 2015 and early 2016, we made several grants in Southeast Asia and the United States, where we have been most engaged in this work. They include:
$40 million for a 20-year fellowship initiative that seeks to dramatically reduce disparities in health access, quality, and outcomes throughout Southeast Asia.
