Aetna Foundation: Mission and vision

The challenges to human health are significant and growing. We believe that strong, concerted action is the only way to get us back on a healthier path. That’s why the Aetna Foundation works with community-based organizations and national partners to change lives by encouraging healthy lifestyles, enhancing health care equity, and putting innovation to work to improve health among the underserved.

The Foundation’s efforts are noted for their:


We collaborate on programs with the potential to affect large populations and look to develop models that can be replicated nationally.


We are constantly pioneering and look for partners who are doing the same, particularly in the areas of technology and science.


Our community grants engage people where they live, particularly in neighborhoods that have limited access to the tools, resources and information to improve health.


We bring together the sharpest minds in science and health care to discuss issues, and shape policies and initiatives that can address root causes of poor health and chronic disease.
