Public Launch 

March  2020

“Rather than feeling marginalized and helpless in the face of the array of problems facing our country and the world, and the inability of the politicians to address them, we have undertaken action to be part of the solution.  We now invite fellow citizens  to contribute a positive voice into the national conversation.”

Shimon Waldfogel


Health of the Nation 


Health of the Nation is  organized by Citizens4Health, a (small) group of committed citizens  motivated by the belief that citizen engagement will contribute solutions to the big problems  confronting our nation and the world.


Our Belief


We believe that the attainment of the highest possible level of health and well being and maximizing the potential for individual flourishing in healthy communities  are fundamental human rights. We also take seriously the Declaration of Independence justification for government: 


"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness."


Declaration of Independence , United States July 4th, 1776



Our Vision


Healthy individuals in healthy communities engaged with  a responsive political system dedicated to securing the right of all people to  life liberty and the pursuit if  happiness. 


By November 2020 every American has the opportunity to:


  • flourish and thrive

  • live and be part of  a healthy community

  • be  part of a responsive representative local and national political system

  • access quality affordable health care services


Our Mission


To provide a framework and tools to change the conversation about our engagement with life from avoiding dis-ease to achieving optimal well being in our personal, social and political spheres. 


Action Plan 


We seek to engage fellow citizens in a process that creates a global society of individual-citizens that  are supported in their quest to achieve the human right to a state of optimal health and to thrive and flourish. We do this by:


  • Provide a framework, Salutogenesis , that reframes our road map from avoiding dis-ease to achieving a state of optimal well being. 

  • Introduce and invite fellow citzens to learn about their own well being and to engage in personal journey towards health.

  • Engage to add well being indicators to assessing the health of the nation.

  • Engage on the local and political level to lobby for social and enviornemtnal conditions that promote Salutogenesis.

  • Provide easy to use relevant data and information about various indicationr of the Health of the Nation. 

  • Provide a framework for targeting social challenges through using the Case Presentation approach.
