Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

About Us

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation focuses on identifying, illuminating, and addressing barriers to health, particularly those caused by structural racism and its intersection with other forms of discrimination, including sexism, ableism, and prejudice based on sexual orientation.

RWJF leans on evidence to advance health equity. It cultivates leaders who work individually and collectively across sectors to address health equity. It promotes policies, practices, and systems change to dismantle the structural barriers to wellbeing created by racism. And it works to amplify voices to shift national conversations and attitudes about health and health equity.

Our Mission

In collaboration with stakeholders, RWJF works to address the many obstacles to wellbeing -- including poverty, powerlessness, and discrimination -- and to advance health equity for all.
