PolicyLink's "Why Place Matters: Building a Movement for Healthy Communities" provides background on how building healthy communities require the cooperation and collaboration of a broad range of sectors and groups, which is a main component of health in all policies (HiAP).
The report provides examples of promising practices for building healthy communities across the United States and can serve as an educational document for local jurisdictions interested in learning more about HiAP.
Social determinants of health
This is a must read for anyone entering into the HiAP or social determinants of health field. Or perhaps a document to place before public officials who are new to the concept of HiAP. But for practitioners this does not provide much guidance on the how of HiAP.
