Prevention Institute E-Alert: August 18, 2016

Provide feedback on new framework for understanding health inequities and community change 

How have policies, practices, and procedures across sectors generated inequities? Join us to discuss next steps related to Prevention Institute’s new working paper on advancing health equity.  The paper, Countering the Production of Health Inequities: An Emerging Systems Framework to Achieve an Equitable Culture of Health, details how inequities across multiple determinants of health have been produced, and identifies the roles multiple sectors and organizations can play in promoting equity. 

Commissioned by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the paper identifies opportunities to produce health equity through change at the community level, supported by local/regional, state, national, and sectoral actions. 

We are currently refining the next steps in translating this framework into tools and products that will be most useful, and are seeking input through early September 2016. There are multiple ways to learn about the framework and provide input:

  1. Register for our live webinar on August 31. We will provide an overview of the framework and seek input on future products and next steps to advance the work.

  2. Visit our online page, where you can review an extended summary of the paper and the executive summary; listen to a recorded presentation on the key findings; and provide input via an online survey to identify opportunities to advance this work, and to translate the framework into messages, tools, and trainings.

To ensure our work is relevant, timely, and useful, we rely on the collective expertise of colleagues working in systems and communities to guide us. We warmly invite you to review the findings and framework, and to provide your input via the online survey on how best to tailor our work to help advance health equity. You may also forward this e-alert to others for their participation.
