Community Planning Tool - Applying a Health Equity Lens to Program Planning

Fraser Health
Description / Summary

Fraser Health Authority has developed this planning tool to support programs who are trying to address physical, social, mental, and emotional health in their communities.

The tool is organized into seven distinct steps of program plan and can be used by individuals and teams. It includes:

  • worksheets to guide practitioners through each step;
  • a glossary of key terms; and
  • appendices that contain guidance on how to complete the various stages of each step in the process.

This tool will be useful for short and long-term program planning to address community needs and take action on health inequities. It is particularly relevant to community organizations, public health practitioners at frontline and management levels, and community partners.
