Mission and Vision Statements
Trust for America’s Health promotes optimal health for every person and community and makes the prevention of illness and injury a national priority.
Trust for America’s Health is a non-partisan public health policy, research and advocacy organization that envisions a nation that values the health and well-being of all and where prevention and health equity are foundational to policymaking at all levels of society.
Our work is often focused on the antecedents of poor health and on prevention. TFAH develops reports and other resources and initiatives, and recommends policies, to advance an evidence-based public health system that is ready to meet the challenges of the 21st century. Recent TFAH reports include ones on obesity, emergency preparedness, public health funding, national health priorities and the drug, alcohol and suicide crisis.
