State budget cuts in recent years have left Georgia’s public health system in critical condition. For the benefit of all Georgians, Healthcare Georgia Foundation believes it is time to reinvest in and rebuild Georgia’s public health system.

In addition to the campaign, the Foundation's grantmaking also featured significant investments in the Georgia Childhood Asthma Management Program, HealthTecdl - Distance Learning, and our new Evaluation Resource Center.

On March 23, 2010, the Patient Protection and Affordability Act was passed and health reform became law, and with it along the way, emotional and heavily politicized debate. In the fall of 2009 and on behalf of Healthcare Georgia Foundation, The University of Georgia’s Survey Research Center conducted a survey of 500 Georgia residents comprised of questions related to health care access, cost, and quality. This issue of HealthVoices highlights those results and the importance of timely, effective, and well-financed health communications, both prior to, and following the passage of the law.

Georgia’s current investments in prevention and public health reflect a decade of declines, despite being the ninth largest state in economic output.

This issue of HealthVoices highlights the consequences of this neglect, Georgians’ support for strong public health, and recommendations for reversing the trend. View Details
