Harkness Fellows in Health Care Policy and Practice make an important impact on policy and practice, both in the United States and in fellows’ home countries. Support for a 17th class of Harkness Fellows will allow The Commonwealth Fund to continue developing promising policy researchers and practitioners from Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom. The Fund also will continue to leverage the program, drawing on alumni fellows’ on-the-ground expertise to highlight policy and delivery system innovations in their home countries through commissioned research and Fund publications. A high-level policy retreat is planned for spring 2014 to bring selected Harkness alumni together with U.S. policymakers to discuss international innovations relevant to U.S. health reform.
