Factsheet Series: The Intersection of Community Development and Health


This series of factsheets aims to answer the question, what makes community development a great partner in health? Each factsheet takes a closer look at the common aims of the community development sector and those focused on some of the important and persistent health challenges faced across the country. We present an evidence base and share case studies of cross-sector partnerships that are collaborating to improve health equity and wellbeing for communities by addressing social determinants of health.

We hope these factsheets support Community Development Corporations in communicating their important contribution to partnerships with the health sector, sparking future collaborations that work towards a common aim: improving health outcomes and fostering healthy communities across the nation.
