Strategic Practices

To advance health equity, local health departments must systematically address power imbalances, racism, and other forms of oppression. To do so, they must transform how they work internally, with communities, and alongside other government agencies. To support this challenging work, we developed this set of strategic practices (read more about our process).

Tips to Apply the Strategic Practices in Your Work
  • There isn’t a step-by-step set of instructions to advance health equity.
  • You will have to mold these strategic practices to fit your local context, and then refine and adapt as the context shifts.
  • Use these strategic practices together, strategically, through an intentional and adaptive process to achieve your goals.
