"Affecting Policy: The Role of Public Health"
Public health policy interventions are targeted to influence systems development, organizational change, social norms, and individual behavior to promote improvement in the health of a population. Policy interventions are important and effective community and societal level strategies for improving the public’s health. This type of population based approach can also be less expensive and cost-effective. While the policy process from planning to development to implementation and evaluation should include the full engagement of multiple stakeholders, the SHD violence and injury prevention programs have a critical role to play in affecting policy interventions that prevent injury, violence, and their consequences.
This webinar focuses on a discussion of the role of public health in the five domains of the policy process, with in-depth discussion on the Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program’s (Core VIPP) approach to affecting policy.
