The Georgia Health Policy Center is proud to release the book, Aligning Systems for Health: Research Learnings from Across the Nation. This book marks the second volume of published learnings from the project and the completion of 21 sponsored studies conducted by research partners across the country.
This work to better understand how to align across sectors nearly entirely occurred during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the pandemic challenged communities, and put health care, public health, and social services sectors under enormous pressure, the crises also created an urgency for collaboration. And so, the tremendous efforts of the research teams and their community partners continued.
The research published in this book represents three cohorts that studied aligning to respond to crisis, measuring aligning, and adopting aligning approaches. The studies surface universal insights, novel insights, challenges the field faces, and hopefully, a renewed sense of optimism that as the knowledge base expands community-directed action is possible to create places where all can be healthy and thrive.
We are grateful for your support!
There is no single best practice of partnering, governing, financing, and implementing, but Aligning Systems for Health has uncovered new learnings and practical approaches to align diverse partners who have a common goal of improving health, equity, and well-being.
Our first book, Aligning Systems for Health: Two Years of Learning, advances understanding of how people and organizations across health care, public health, and social services sectors can work together in new and sustainable ways to advance health and well-being.
With new insights and practical learnings from both research and practice, this book can benefit all who are working to build healthier and more equitable communities. Download your copy today!
