The Milbank Memorial Fund is an endowed operating foundation that works to improve the health of populations by connecting leaders and decision makers with the best available evidence and experience. Founded in 1905, the Fund engages in nonpartisan analysis, collaboration, and communication on significant issues in health policy. It does this work in three ways:

  • Publications—We publish high quality, evidence-based reports, books, and The Milbank Quarterly, a peer-reviewed journal of population health and health policy.

  • Programs—We convene state health policy decision makers on issues they identify as important to population health and facilitate the development of policies that work for them and their constituents.

  • People—We build communities of health policymakers to enhance their effectiveness.
