Our Research

Systems for Action (S4A) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) that aims to discover and apply new evidence about ways of aligning the delivery and financing systems that support a Culture of Health. A stakeholder-engaged expert panel worked the team of leaders from RWJF and the national program office to identify the initial S4A research priorities. The resulting Research Agenda describes these early priorities that contribute to identifying and accelerating the system innovations and interactions that support a Culture of Health.
