In 2014 the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation launched its quest to create a “Culture of Health,” a new approach to the interconnected nature of health and social issues, with major implications for health policy and health philanthropy.
The November 2016 thematic issue of Health Affairs is devoted to the topic of Culture of Health—our contribution to understanding this new vision. In the issue we attempt to answer some of the questions that come along with the endeavor: How will we know when we have created a culture of health, if and when we do? How do we map culture, a term many of us associate with anthropology, onto the specialized language of health policy, health care, and health services research?
