Abstract:

The Boston Public Health Commission (BPHC) will present an overview of the innovative Prevention and Wellness Trust Fund (PWTF) Boston Partnership model for effective cross-sector partnerships and public health initiatives. PWTF achieved its primary goals, which were to: 1.) Establish and optimize clinical and community linkages, 2.) Enhance comprehensive clinical care, and 3.) Advance health equity while addressing some of the state’s most prevalent and preventable health issues. These efforts specifically focused on Older Adult Falls, Pediatric Asthma, Hypertension, and Tobacco Control. The Prevention and Wellness Trust Fund was created through Massachusetts state legislation in 2012 as an integral part of the state’s multi-faceted approach to healthcare transformation through innovative partnerships. Under the leadership of the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, PWTF provided funding to 9 local municipalities, including Boston. Through invaluable strategic partnerships, PWTF established and leveraged a network of community providers, residents, leaders and existing initiatives to advance work in prevention and wellness.
