Addressing Social Determinants of Health Through Policy
The Social Determinants of Health-Getting Further Faster Initiative Training and Technical Assistance Center
National Association of County and City Health Officials
Mathematica created the Policy Planning Guide to support multi-sector community coalitions and partnerships addressing social determinants of health to advance health equity and prevent chronic disease as part of the Improving Social Determinants of Health (SDOH)–Getting Further, Faster Initiative. This initiative is a partnership between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO), and Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO). To promote collaboration and share learnings, NACCHO and ASTHO made this guide and companion fillable planning template available for use by any community coalition or partnership addressing SDOH. This guide can be used on its own or in conjunction with the Sustainability Planning Guide for SDOH teams looking to achieve their sustainability goals. We hope it will help you develop a culture of learning that supports your SDOH goals and advances health equity.
