Our Focus

At the Aetna Foundation, we believe in the power of strategic philanthropy to help improve people’s health as well as the quality of health care in our country.

We focus our grant making on research that can deepen our knowledge of root causes of pressing health issues, on programs that can produce measurable results and on analyses that can lead to better policies that impact our health.

Our goal is to make a significant impact in our three program areas:

Obesity: To understand, prevent, and successfully treat obesity.

Health Equity: To ensure equity in health outcomes and health care for common chronic conditions and infant mortality.

Integrated Health Care: To coordinate and integrate health care delivery among health practitioners, inform and involve patients in their treatment, and make care cost-effective and affordable – centered around strong primary care.
