Designing and Building Healthy Places

Description:

The CDC's Healthy Community Design Initiative works to improve health by linking public health surveillance with community design decisions, improving community design decisions through tools such as Health Impact Assessment, educating decision makers on the health impacts of community design, building partnerships with community design decision makers and their influencers, conducting research to identify links between health and community design, and translating research into best practices. The Designing and Building Healthy Places website provides a wealth of information and resources related to how community design impacts the public's health, and houses a number of factsheets, articles, and other publications.
