Creating Sustainable Healthy Communities
In collaboration with funded communities and partners, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Healthy Communities Program has developed a Sustainability Planning Guide for communities. The purpose of this guide is to facilitate communities, community leaders, and other public and community health professionals to develop a sustainability plan and learn key sustainability approaches like policies, partnerships, organizational
strategies, and related activities, introduces various approaches to sustainability, and demonstrates sustainability planning in action with real-life examples.
