Access to Affordable, Quality Health Care Is a Fundamental Human Right
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 we made several culminating grants in South Africa, Southeast Asia and the United States, where we have been most engaged in this work. They include:
$24 million for the Atlantic Fellows for Health Equity program at George Washington University’s Health Workforce Institute to identify, connect and prepare leaders to build more equitable health systems and organizations.
