10 Key Components of Healthy, Equitable Communities


10 Key Components
for Building Healthy, Equitable Communities

The ten key components for creating healthy, equitable communities build on the great work of our partners and were identified through analyzing local health data and research, and gathering extensive community feedback. 

Within these 10 components, four priority areas were identified as key priorities for healthy, equitable communities that focus on the root causes of health, grouped as: Healthy Housing, Healthy Neighborhoods, Healthy Schools, and a Healthy Economy. Find more in our Strategic Plan for 2015-2020.

A healthy, equitable community is one that offers complete social, physical and mental well-being to all its residents at all stages of life and has the following themes embedded across all the components: accessibility, affordability, stability, diversity, safety, equity.
