Domain 4: Engage with the community to identify and address health problems
Domain 4 focuses on community engagement. Members of the community possess unique perspectives on how issues are manifested in the community, what and how community assets can be mobilized, and what interventions will be effective. Community members are important partners in identifying and defining public health issues, developing solutions or improvements, advocating for policy changes, communicating important information, and implementing public health initiatives. Public health can broaden its leverage and impact by doing things with the community rather than doing things to the community. Aligning and coordinating efforts towards health promotion, disease prevention, and health equity across a wide range of partners is essential to the success of health improvement. This domain addresses health departments’ establishment and maintenance of community partnerships and collaborations that will facilitate public health goals being accomplished, promote community resilience, and advance the improvement of the public’s health.
