Mission

The Jewish Healthcare Foundation (JHF) is a public charity that offers a unique brand of activist philanthropy to advance healthcare innovation, advocacy, collaboration, and education in the interest of better population health. To accomplish its goals, JHF created three supporting organizations — the Pittsburgh Regional Health Initiative (PRHI) in 1998, Health Careers Futures (HCF) in 2003, and the Women's Health Activist Movement Global (WHAMglobal) in 2017. Together these organizations develop and manage programs, research, training, and grantmaking to perfect community care. JHF is also the fiscal agent for State HIV/AIDS funding in Pennsylvania. JHF is funded by public and private sources, and the JHF endowment.

JHF is also a founding member of the Network for Regional Healthcare Improvement (NRHI).
