The Milbank Quarterly Centennial Issue: The Future of Population Health

In celebration of its 100th anniversary, The Milbank Quarterly has published The Future of Population Health: Challenges and Opportunities, a special issue of 36 articles by a diverse set of leading and emerging scholars. Edited by Alan Cohen and Sandro Galea of Boston University School of Public Health and Paula M. Lantz of the Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan, the issue underscores that health is inextricable from the conditions that shape our world, as well as the need for scholarship that advances practical solutions to our population health challenges.

The issue covers the structural drivers of population health; state- and municipal-level policies and strategies to advance population health; key issues in population health and health equity; population health’s major challenges; public health systems and strategies; and the role of the US health system. All articles are open access for three months.
