Multi-sector Partnerships for Health: 2014 Pulse Check Findings


This report provides a general overview of current multi-sector collaborations for health. The number of such partnerships have grown at enormous rates in the past several years. Certain sectors, like healthcare and public health, dominate the multi-sector collaboration field, while others, like health insurance, philanthropy, business, and economic development tend to be less engaged. Many organizations appear to have more ambitious visions than their present plans and resources allow. Finally, sustainable funding is an issue, with most funds coming from grants or similar one-time funding sources that are laborious to obtain and may have strings attached.
