Authored by Change Lab Solutions, this guide "Partners for Public Health: Working with Local, State, and Federal Agencies to Create Healthier Communities" is designed to aid public health advocates as they work with different sectors of government to improve health outcomes. It specifically hones in on topics like business permitting, public utilities, public works, soil quality, and water quality. It outlines specific steps that can be taken at different levels of government from local to federal. For local health departments exploring a health in all policies strategy, this document is especially useful for identifying steps that can be taken by different sectors and for ensuring that environmental health is promoted in addition to efforts to combat obesity.
