The Milbank Memorial Fund is an endowed operating foundation that aims to improve population health and health equity by connecting leaders and decision makers by collaborating with leaders and decision makers and connecting them with experience and sound evidence. It does this work by:

  • Identifying, informing, and inspiring current and future state health policy leaders to enhance their effectiveness;
  • Working with state health policy decision makers on issues they identify as important to population health, particularly in areas related to primary care, aging, and total costs of care; and
  • Publishing high-quality, evidence-based publications and The Milbank Quarterly, a peer-reviewed journal of population health and health policy.
