PolicyLink and Prevention Institute join the representatives of seven national foundations and healthcare organizations in engagement and messages that reinforce the Partnership’s values and speak clearly to what it stands for: a nation where every community fosters health, prosperity, and well-being for all. 

"We Stand for Prevention and Equity" is a declaration of the Partnership’s commitment to prevention and equity—just and fair inclusion into a society where all can participate, prosper, and achieve their full potential—to achieve its vision of Healthy People, Healthy Places.
