Health Equity Series: Session 3 – Capacity Building & Strategic Planning
January 14 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm
As we learned in Session 2, a truly equitable needs assessment factors in the unjust distribution and access to resources that impact the Social Determinants of Health (SDOH); thus, contributing to the vulnerable status of certain populations. Successful prevention hinges on the capacity of the community to address the needs uncovered during the assessment phase.
During Session 3, we will focus on the community process for building resources and readiness that mobilize key stakeholders to work upstream to address the sources of the inequities. Next, we will discuss how to engage stakeholders in the strategic planning process to leverage those resources against the discriminatory practices and policies of the past.
After participating in the training participants should be able to:
- Describe the impact of injustices on the capacity within a community
- Engage diverse community stakeholders to address the deeper needs of the community
- Select prevention strategies that address disparities and the inequities that created them
- Employ tips to create a truly comprehensive plan that factors in the SDOH
