Atlantic Announces $40M for Fellowship to Reduce International Health Disparities
This is an historic year for The Atlantic Philanthropies. In 2016, we have reached our 35th year of grantmaking, and also our last.
In recent updates, I’ve discussed our culminating grants that build on our three and a half decades of work to address global challenges such as dementia and brain health, migration, socioeconomic inequality, and the continuing legacy of racial injustice. The common drive behind these investments is to promote and enhance opportunities for people, especially in places where systemic barriers unfairly hold them back, and to address the root causes of inequity rather than the symptoms.
Today, I’m excited to announce a number of major investments to improve access to quality health care for people in both Southeast Asia and the United States. Our goals for these investments are ambitious but achievable: to raise the quality of health care, health outcomes and, indeed, quality of life across entire populations, without disparities associated with socioeconomic status. . .
