Population Health Initiative boilerplate
The following boilerplate language can be included in grant applications to help explain the UW’s commitment to population health:
The University of Washington sees population health as a broad concept encompassing not only the elimination of diseases, but also the intersecting and overlapping factors that influence health. These factors include the environment, education, policy, poverty, technology access, and urban planning, to name a few. Together, these issues revolve around three major pillars — human health, environmental resilience, and social and economic equity — that affect the lives of billions of people around the world. Through our new Population Health Initiative, we seek to build collaboratively on work taking place across these pillars to create a world where all people can live a healthier and more fulfilling life.
