Building Capacity of Professional Planners to Address Public Health Goals:

CDC’s Healthy Community Design Initiative is part of the National Center for Environmental Health's Division of Emergency and Environmental Health Services. The Initiative works to improve public health by:
• Linking public health surveillance with community design decisions;
• Improving community design decisions through tools such as Health Impact Assessment;
• Educating decision makers on the health impact of community design;
• Building partnerships with community design decision makers and their influencers.

In order to increase the capacity of professional planners and planning departments to address today’s public health issues this cooperative agreement will develop strategies and initiatives designed to provide evidence based guidance that planning professionals can use to create health promoting communities. It is expected that tools, techniques, and information needed for health considerations to be an explicit component in comprehensive plans, development regulations, planning process, capital budgets, transportation, and land use planning will be identified and created. Communications plans for agreed upon initiatives are recommended.
