The Community Health Promotion Handbook: Action Guides to Improve Community Health


Developed by Partnership for Prevention and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), this comprehensive evidence-based tool helps public health practitioners and others interested in promoting health to implement effective community-level health promotion practices. The five Action Guides, which are based on recommendations from The Guide to Community Preventive Services (Community Guide), also provide suggested resource needs, evaluation questions, tips for overcoming potential obstacles, and links to additional tools and resources to assist with planning and implementation. Action Guides address diabetes management, physical activity, and tobacco-use treatment.
