 Implementing Critical Elements of the Health for All Model

The Health for All Model has interrelated five phases: a) Collaborative Planning and  Capacity Building (e.g., action planning), b) Targeted Action and Intervention (e.g., community mobilization), c) Community and System Changes (e.g., new/modified programs policies, and practices), d) Widespread Behavior Change (e.g., increases in physical activity, healthy nutrition, those receiving health screenings), and d) Improving  Community Health Outcomes (e.g., reduced rates of diabetes, eliminate disparities). Click here for more information on the Model.
