The mission of the Work and Health Initiative funded by The California Wellness Foundation (TCWF) was to improve the health of Californians by funding employment-related interventions. Fundamental to this Initiative was the perspective that important relationships between work and health are shaped by an evolving California economy. The goals of the Initiative were to (1) understand the rapidly changing nature of work and its effects on the health of Californians; (2) increase access to high quality employment for all Californians; (3) improve conditions of work for employed Californians; and (4) expand the availability of worksite health programs and benefits.
