Complex health problems facing communities today require creative solutions that can impact the root causes that deprive many people of the opportunity to reach their best health potential. Addressing these issues requires partnerships that work across different sectors, leverage an array of expertise and resources, and develop synergistic solutions that are more powerful than what is possible by working alone.
