Community Hlth Promotion
- Partnership for Prevention is a membership organization of businesses, nonprofit organizations and government agencies advancing policies and practices to prevent disease and improve the health of all Americans. We seek to increase investment in preventing disease and promoting health and to make prevention a national priority.
- Partnership for Prevention and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have worked together to bridge the gap between research and practice by developing The Community Health Promotion Handbook: Action Guides to Improve Community Health. The Community Health Promotion Handbook is an evidence-based tool that consists of an Introduction and five Action Guides. Each Action Guides translates a specific recommendation from The Guide to Community Preventive Services (Community Guide) into “how to” guidance to help public health practitioners and others interested in promoting health implement effective community-level health promotion strategies. The five Action Guides address diabetes management, facilitating physical activity with a community trail, school-based physical education, facilitating physical activity with community walking groups, and tobacco-use treatment.
