As a companion to the online course titled Partnering4Health: Approaches to Sustaining Healthy Communities, SOPHE has developed a toolkit to provide guidance and resources for those who seek to carry out the sustainability activities described in the course. Whereas the online course provides guidance about the steps that can be taken to ensure sustainability, the toolkit provides the tools and resources that can help public health professionals and educators, community-based organizations, and community members who are passionate about improving the health of their communities to take those steps toward sustaining healthy communities.
The Community Tool Box is a free, online resource for those working to build healthier communities and bring about social change. It offers thousands of pages of tips and tools for taking action in communities.Topics covered include community assessment, planning, intervention, evaluation, advocacy, and others. There are 46 Chapters that offer practical, step-by-step guidance in community-building skills as well as 16 toolkits which offer short outlines for key tasks.
