The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

The Robert Wood Johnson FoundationThe Robert Wood Johnson Foundation seeks to improve the health and health care of all Americans. To achieve the most impact with their funds, the Foundation prioritizes grants into four goal areas:

  • To assure that all Americans have access to quality health care at reasonable cost

    Nearly 45 million Americans, nearly 8 million of them children, go without health insurance. This is the single greatest barrier to obtaining timely, appropriate health care services.


  • To improve the quality of care and support for people with chronic health conditions

    One hundred million Americans suffer from chronic health conditions, and that number is almost certain to increase as the population ages.

  • To promote healthy communities and lifestyles

    The health behaviors of individuals, level of social interaction and other factors outside medical care are important influences on overall health.

  • To reduce the personal, social and economic harm caused by substance abuse - tobacco, alcohol, and illicit drugs

    Tobacco, alcohol and illicit drugs inflict an enormous toll on Americans, especially among our youth.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation funds Active for Life and other Active Living programs.
