Community Engagement
Engaging community members in problem-solving solutions to issues that affect them is one of the fundamental principles of public health. The most effective way to achieve public health goals, especially the elimination of disparities in health status, is to actively engage those experiencing the problems in every aspect of addressing them. Community engagement means involving community members in all activities--from identifying the relevant issues and making decisions about how to address them, to evaluating and sharing the results with the community. The information on this Web site provides background, tips and tools for effective community engagement.
