The Milbank Memorial Fund is an endowed operating foundation that publishes The Milbank Quarterly, commissions projects, and convenes state health policy decision makers on issues they identify as important to population health.
The Milbank Quarterly is pleased to present this compilation of research articles, perspectives, and scholarly opinions published during the past two years, covering a wide range of population health issues. Among the topics are: the impact of social policies on health; how different state policies influence life expectancy; how culture, race, and health interact with one another; the economic value of education for health; and how equity-oriented health care may enhance primary care. The special issue also contains a policy forum discussing how New Zealand’s first-in-the-world wellbeing budget prioritizes investment for fundamental national aims: improving mental health; reducing child poverty; reducing inequalities faced by indigenous people; enabling citizens to thrive in a digital age, and transitioning the nation to a low-emission sustainable economy.
The Milbank Quarterly is pleased to present this compilation of research articles, perspectives, and scholarly opinions published during the past two years, covering a wide range of state health policy innovations. This collection has been specially curated to offer the reader insight into innovations undertaken by individual states (e.g., Washington State’s Long-Term Care Trust Act, Delaware’s primary care initiatives) as well as those implemented in partnership with federal agencies (e.g., Round 1 of the State Innovation Models of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services). Together, they offer a picture of what might be possible to accomplish in future efforts to reform the health care system and improve population health.
