ChangeLab Solutions and The BUILD Health Challenge® (BUILD) have created a new Community Health Workbook for cross-sector team members engaged in the early stages of a collaboration to strengthen community-wide health equity. The workbook provides conversation starters and collaborative activities based on learnings from BUILD communities throughout the country as well as resources from across the field of community health.
The BUILD Health Challenge convenes and supports partnerships between community-based organizations and residents; hospitals and health systems; and local health departments. ChangeLab Solutions has provided technical assistance to BUILD community partners since 2019.
Whether you are new to the idea of community health, a professional working full time on health equity, or somewhere in between, this workbook is for you. Community leaders can use the questions and activities from the workbook to apply the BUILD principles and create bold, upstream, integrated, local, data-driven initiatives. The only prerequisite is a desire to collaborate with partners in your community who are interested in advancing better health for all.
