The Advisory Board Company, de Beaumont Foundation, Kresge Foundation, and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation have launched the BUILD Health Challenge, which will identify and support health partnerships taking "Bold, Upstream, Integrated, Local, and Data-driven" approaches to improving health in low-income, urban communities.

"Unlike many population health initiatives, the BUILD Health Challenge requires awardees to take a multi-sector approach, including at least one hospital or health system, the local health department, and a nonprofit organization (or coalition of local non-profits) in an equal partnership," the sponsors said. "The program evolved out of a wealth of research demonstrating that up to 70 percent of an individual's health is determined by the interplay of physical, social, and economic environments, rather than healthcare and genetics."
