County Health Rankings & Roadmaps Releases New Resources for Community Leaders!

Making it Easier to Find What Works for Health

County Health Rankings & Roadmaps Releases New Resource for Community Leaders
When it comes to solving problems that affect our health, knowing what works matters. Implementing or adapting proven strategies increases your likelihood of success in improving health.
What Works for Health, the latest release from County Health Rankings & Roadmaps, is an online, searchable menu of policies and programs—each with a rating based on strength of evidence for factors that can help make communities healthier places to live, learn, work and play. Each of the policies, such as increased alcohol taxes, for example, and programs, such as early childhood interventions, included in What Works for Health is given an evidence rating to help guide users toward choosing proven strategies.
What Works for Health is easy to use. Simply choose a health factor (i.e. tobacco use, employment, access to health care, or environmental quality) and browse through the evidence ratings for programs or policies, that address the particular health factor of interest.
Together, the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps and the new What Works for Health give you a profile of your county’s health, guidance to take action, and information on strategies that can make your community healthier.
