Promoting Health and Cost Control in States: How States Can Improve Community Health & Well-being Through Policy Change

“This report is the first product of the Promoting Health and Cost Control in States (PHACCS) initiative. It identifies policies for good health that look beyond healthcare, part of a larger effort to foster cross-sector collaboration, because changes to any given policy area can impact the population’s well-being and states’ ability to control costs. Additionally, PHACCS recognizes the value of state- and local-level collaboration and includes considerations for those relationships so that policy can be implemented successfully.”
