Public Health 3.0

Transforming Communities

Public Health 3.0 emphasizes collaborative engagement and actions that directly affect the social determinants of health inequity. NACCHO is working with its local health departments to define what Public Health 3.0 means in practical, viable terms, and how to refine the LHD’s role in leading these efforts in the communities they serve. The good news is that many communities across the nation are already doing the hard work to change their local health system to foster improvements in their community's health.  

Below you will find information about the five Public Health 3.0 recommendations, with an emphasis on the role of the Community Health Strategist in addressing population health, as well as resources for each recommendation and stories from the field that describe how creative, dynamic collaborations are advancing community health.
