State Health Policy Leadership

The Milbank Memorial Fund is committed to improving the ability of state health policymakers to make informed decisions that enhance the health of the populations they serve.

The Milbank Memorial Fund aims to identify, inform, and inspire current and future state health policy leaders to enhance their effectiveness. In an effort to inform and inspire, we offer publications that show how and why state leaders accomplished a policy or practice change that led to improved health. Along with our partner, the Center for Evidence-based Policy at Oregon Health & Science University, a national leader in evidence-based decision making and policy design, we also offer several tools for policymakers, such as state technical assistance.

You can learn more about Milbank’s convening role by reading about our Reforming States Group, a bipartisan, voluntary, self-governing group of state health policy leaders from both the executive and legislative branches that was established by the Milbank Memorial Fund in 1992.
