RWJF Systems for Action (S4A): Call for Proposals
Deadline: October 10, 2018 12:00 PM

This deadline has passed and is no longer active

Systems for Action (S4A) is a signature research program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that builds a Culture of Health by rigorously testing new ways of connecting the nation’s fragmented medical, social, and public health systems. Scientific research often focuses narrowly on a single type of service, professional area of practice, or group of service providers–usually those within the medical care and public health sectors. While such studies allow researchers to isolate the implementation and impact of specific interventions, the research often falls short in revealing how multiple systems converge and interact–or fail to do so–in supporting population health. To address these evidence gaps, the S4A program supports new research on novel ways of aligning delivery and financing systems across these three sectors.

S4A uses a wide research lens that includes and extends beyond medical care and public health to include other social service systems that affect health and well-being, such as housing, transportation, education, employment, food and nutrition assistance, child and family support, criminal and juvenile justice, and economic and community development.

What We Fund
The 2018 Systems for Action Call for Proposals is now open and will close on Wednesday, October 10, 2018, 3pm ET.

Studies funded through the 2018 Systems for Action: System and Services Research to Build a Culture of Health Call for Proposals will produce new scientific knowledge about the implementation and impact of innovative strategies to align multiple financing and delivery systems supporting a Culture of Health. Studies must address one or more of the research priorities listed in the S4A Research Agenda and focus on one more novel mechanisms for multi-sector alignment, integration, and improvement.
