Altarum Institute believes that engaging all stakeholders in communities is essential for improving the nation’s health.

The characteristics of a community – formal and informal networks and support systems; norms and cultural nuances; racial, ethnic, sexual, gender, geographic, and socioeconomic characteristics; and institutions, thought leaders, and belief systems – are considered as we develop and implement frameworks for guiding, supporting, and evaluating community and systems change.

We help communities assess problems, needs, strengths, and resources, and design, choose, and adapt interventions to improve health outcomes.
