Policy, Systems, and Environmental Change
IPHI works with its partners to strengthen service systems and public policy and shape community environments and conditions that contribute to healthier communities.
For example, we coordinate multi-sector efforts to improve food systems and housing conditions, lead a regional campaign to advance municipal policies that contribute to healthier community environments, and facilitate partnerships aimed at more effective, integrated systems of prevention and healthcare services. Below are a few current examples of our policy, systems, and environmental change work.
