Bloomberg Philanthropies’ donation to the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health that launched the Initiative
By spreading smart public health strategies that save lives and bringing people together to try new approaches, we can make the same strides in the 21st century against health threats like air pollution, gun violence, and obesity that we did in the 20th century against infectious disease. There’s no institution better equipped to lead the charge than Johns Hopkins.
