Local or regional partnerships with the community

The success of public health interventions depends largely on the cooperation and involvement of partners. In order to make this happen, the decision makers and stakeholders from all sectors of society who hold the necessary means to act on determinants of health, are called upon to work together.

Some examples:

  • Support provided by community organizers to the community;
  • Participation in the collective impact projects (PICS) in different neighbourhoods;
  • Research partnerships with the community (CREGÈS and SHERPA);
  • Gambling/betting and addiction prevention;
  • Participation in local consultations: promoting favourable environments; development of children, youth and families; social participation of seniors; sanitary and affordable housing; 
  • Food security;
  • Mental health promotion;
  • Neighbourhood revitalization;
  • Poverty reduction; educational success;
  • Integration, health and well-being of diverse populations (people with disabilities, newcomers, indigenous people, homeless people)
