The Rural Health Public-Private Partnership (RHPPP)
2023 Public-Private Collaborations in Rural Health Meeting – October 26 and 27, 2023
For more information, visit Grantmakers In Health.
In 2012, the Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (FORHP) collaborated with Grantmakers In Health (GIH) and the
National Rural Health Association (NRHA) to convene public and private foundations, researchers, and policy
makers to discuss federal programs and foundation-led healthcare initiatives in rural areas. Since its
inception, the annual Public-Private Collaborations in Rural Health meeting has presented an opportunity
for these groups to connect with one another, share ideas, and discuss how combined efforts might produce better
health outcomes for rural communities. Currently there are nearly 70 foundations
and trusts active in the Rural
Health Public-Private Partnership (RHPPP) each year.
A June 2015 Rural Monitor article, Government
and Philanthropies Join Forces for Rural Health, shares the
partnership’s history and highlights the group’s third annual meeting. In this brief 2019 video, RHPPP
participants highlight the benefits of attending the group’s annual meetings and working together throughout the
year to make a difference in rural communities:
Sharing Innovative Funding Approaches
FORHP is working to help foundations share the rural funding efforts they have underway so RHPPP members and
other philanthropies can learn from each other. As part of this process, FORHP works with RHIhub to develop
feature stories and case studies that highlight the people involved and the
innovative approaches they are developing.
Some results made possible through the partnership include:
