Improving the health of people in the U.S. and abroad

AIR seeks to improve people’s lives and communities by addressing all aspects of health and well-being—physical, social, emotional, and mental—from the earliest years through later in life. Our work covers a broad range of areas, including the treatment and prevention of diseases; strategies for addressing the opioid epidemic and other substance use disorders; supporting access to health care with a focus on equity; and improving health systems, patient care, and public outreach and communications.

Our health work focuses on issues that impact the health and well-being of all populations. AIR’s work generates evidence to inform policymakers, leaders, and practitioners as they work to improve access and quality, and reduce inequalities.
