Move a significant portion people from disadvantaged—below twice the federal poverty level—to advantaged.  This may be done, for example, through better education, job training, or living wage policies.

Consequences: The advantaged are less likely to engage in unhealthy behavior, or to live in hazardous or high-crime environments, or to develop chronic physical or mental illness, or to be uninsured, or to go to the hospital for non-urgent care; and more likely to engage in self-care and care-seeking activities.
