Promoting Healthy Public Policy through CBPR: Ten Case Studies
Posted by on January 26, 2009
New report, “Promoting Healthy Public Policy through CBPR: Ten Case Studies” available from PolicyLink
This report is the product of a collaboration between the School of Public Health at the University of California, Berkeley, and PolicyLink. It explores 10 case studies of diverse community-based participatory research (CBPR) partnerships around the United States that have in common a commitment to foster healthy public policy. The 10 partnerships examined are in areas as diverse as South Los Angeles, California; New Castle, Indiana; Harlem, New York; and Tillery, North Carolina. These case studies offer a window into the world of community, health department, and academic partnerships throughout the nation that are working to change policy to improve community health, reduce disparities, and foster equity. The report draws on data from dozens of in-depth interviews with partnership members, community focus groups, and policymakers, as well as document review and participant observation.
