Kaiser Permanente recognizes that the changes we want to see in our communities are so broad and deep that no one organization can achieve them alone. In addition, healthy communities require the engagement of people and organizations that may have different aims but convergent strategies—economic development, environmental sustainability, education, and community development are all part of the broader movement for Healthy People in Healthy Places.
The Healthy Eating Active Living Convergence Partnership is a focal point for this movement. Through its outreach, investments, and thought leadership, the Convergence Partnership aims to strengthen and accelerate multi-field, equity-focused efforts among practitioners, policymakers, funders, and advocates to create environments that support Healthy People in Healthy Places.
Co-founded by Kaiser Permanente in 2006, the Convergence Partnership includes the following organizations:
- Ascension Health
- The California Endowment
- Kaiser Permanente
- Kresge Foundation
- The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
- The Rockefeller Foundation
- The W.K. Kellogg Foundation
- The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (technical advisor)
- PolicyLink (program director)
- Prevention Institute (research and strategic advisor)
