Ranking the health of nearly every county in the nation, the County Health Rankings illustrate what we know when it comes to what’s making people sick or healthy. The new County Health Roadmaps show what we can do to create healthier places to live, learn, work and play. The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) is collaborating with the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute (UWPHI) to bring this program to cities, counties and states across the nation.
The County Health Roadmaps project includes several efforts to build connections with local communities, national partners and leaders across all sectors to improve health. The project includes grants to coalitions across the U.S. that are working to improve the health of people in their communities; grants to national organizations to mobilize local leaders and affiliates to improve health; a prize program to recognize communities taking action and whose promising efforts will likely lead to better health; and tools and resources to help groups working to improve the health of people in their communities.
