What is Systems for Action?

The National Program Office for the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation's (RWJF) Systems for Action (S4A) research program is based at the University of Kentucky within the College of Public Health and the Gatton College of Business and Economics. S4A joins Evidence for Action (E4A), Health Data for Action (HD4A), and Policies for Action (P4A) as one of four RWJF signature research programs that examine the impact of different types of programs, policies and health-related systems on health, equity and well-being. Our program conducts rigorous scientific research on ways of aligning the delivery and financing systems that build a Culture of Health across America.
