Aligning for Health submitted comments to the Healthy Future Task Force, Security Subcommittee on its recent request for information on pandemic preparedness, public health, and supply chains. The goal of the Healthy Future Task Force is to build on Republican health policy goals and craft patient-focused agendas for the future.
Specifically, Aligning for Health commented on questions related to addressing social determinants of health and maternal health as part of a broader public health strategy.
Generally, our comments fall into several themes –
- Reduce silos between existing efforts funded by governments and encourage more collaboration.
- Improve the screening and collection of social needs data to improve interventions and evaluate outcomes.
- Enhance coordination between government and non-government organizations working to address social needs through shared regional networks that support coordination, information sharing and referrals.
