Viewing Resource: Communities Taking Action: Profile of Health Equity
Communities Taking Action is a webpage tool that enables the user to earch by injury or violence for examples of state/local injury and violence prevention-related health equity programs. It is a collection of profiles that showcase successful community initiatives aimed at improving health equity. Promoting just and equitable health outcomes require social, cultural and physical environments that prevent illness and injury in the first place and a commitment to promoting racial and social justice. The profiles demonstrate how strong leadership, community engagement and advocacy, innovative thinking and changes in local policies and institutional practices can successfully converge to shape healthier, more equitable community environments.
