Policy & Advocacy

PHI develops strategic public policy solutions at the global, federal, state and local level that leverage cutting-edge research and build the power and influence of community leaders.

Support the California Health Equity & Racial Justice Fund

The California Health Equity and Racial Justice Fund would establish an annual fund to support nonprofit clinics, tribal organizations and community-based organizations to identify and address the health and justice issues most important to them—like housing, violence prevention, food security and more.

With experience across a range of policy areas and issues, combined with our strong record working side-by-side with business, government, and community-based organizations, PHI and its programs are effective, influential advocates for public health in local, state and federal policy. PHI focuses on building sustainable community power and leaders who can advocate persuasively and effectively for the issues most important in their lives.

PHI develops and supports forward-thinking research and policy to support the public health perspective as it relates to many of the most complex challenges facing the nation today, including: agriculture and nutrition, transportation planning, climate change, economic development, healthy communities, telehealth and health information technology, and alcohol, tobacco and substance use.
