Innovation almost always begins as a change in thought before it becomes a change in action. The field of health funding is a prime example of this; whereas health funding 20 years ago was almost entirely focused on clinical medicine, the field has evolved over the past two decades to include holistic health and wellness and now devotes much of its attention to considering the social determinants of health — root causes that interweave elements of housing, employment, income, education, justice, and equity. That shift didn’t happen overnight, but was the product of much thought, research and reflection.
