Health Equity Resource Toolkit for State Practitioners Addressing Obesity Disparities
The purpose of this US-based toolkit is to increase the capacity of state health departments and their partners to work with and through communities to implement effective responses to obesity in populations that are facing health disparities. The toolkit’s primary focus is on the development of policy, systems, and environmental changes that will reduce obesity disparities and achieve health equity. It provides evidence-informed and real-world examples of addressing disparities by illustrating how the concepts presented can be promoted in programs to achieve health equity using three evidence-informed strategies as examples.
