Our focus

Improving community health and well-being in Louisville and beyond

The Humana Foundation co-creates communities where leadership, culture and systems work to improve and sustain positive health outcomes.

By investing and partnering with select organizations focused on social determinants of health—such as asset and financial security, food security and social connections—the Humana Foundation aims to give people more healthy days.

Social determinants of health are the conditions under which people are born, grow, live, work and age that impact overall health and well-being.

In 2018, the Humana Foundation expects to make a greater impact by issuing “fewer, bigger” grants in the communities we serve. These grants will have a longer-term focus, recognizing that the change the foundation seeks will likely take years to achieve, in partnership with others. We will be working to identify partners – at the local, regional and national level – because joining forces with like-minded entities can result in more impactful, broad-based and sustainable change.

“In order to make more of an impact, we plan to collaborate with leaders to address so-called ‘upstream’ social determinants of health—such as employment, income and poverty, food access, and social isolation—so that fewer people will develop chronic health conditions in the first place.”
