Health is a basic individual right and an essential feature of stable, equitable communities. Historical exclusion of communities from adequate healthcare is profoundly destabilizing to society as a whole. The foundation believes that without general health and welfare, all other rights are precarious.
The Wagner Foundation supports long-term investments in quality healthcare infrastructure and medical training as a means to deliver access to this right. The rise of modern healthcare represents one of the most beneficial developments in world history.

The foundation supports investments in public health and the development of global health care networks. Building coalitions around the development of inclusive health care institutions reaffirms a community’s collective commitment to the welfare of all its members.
