Involving the Community in Program Development

Order Description

One of the most fundamental activities within public health is developing community-based programs to improve the health of the community. This week you are introduced to different strategies or approaches for initiating and developing community-based programs. You will learn more about how to locate and use evidence in constructing such a program to ensure that your program is based on the best available knowledge.
Briefly describe the community and the public health issue you plan to focus on in your Application this week.
In this Discussion you will consider how you would involve the community in the program’s development. What would be effective ways for including them in the process? Draw on your Learning Resources to support your assertions.
The planning of programs and interventions is one of the core activities within public health. Recall various public health programs and interventions that you have learned about so far, either from firsthand experience or in your readings. How were they developed? In what ways were they based on evidence? What do you suppose are the factors having to do with initial planning that led to their success or failure?
