Capacity Building

Health Promotion, Health Education, Tools & Resources

A healthy community is a form of living democracy: people working together to address what matters to them. As citizens, we have a duty to shape the basic conditions that affect our lives with others in transforming communities, we are guided by shared values and principles that bind us in common purpose.

Building healthier communities blend the local and the universal, the particular and broader contexts. Such efforts are grounded locally: the family, the neighborhood, and other familiar communities. To be effective, however, we must also bring diverse groups of people and organizations together to transform the broader conditions that affect local work.

This requires courage, doubt, and faith: the courage to trust those outside our immediate experience, the doubt to question what is, and the faith to believe that together, we will make a difference.

The work of building healthier communities takes time: our time, that of our children, and that of our children’s children. A Jewish proverb counsels: “You are not bound to finish the work, but neither are you free to give it up.”
In our emerging ties across place and time, we join others in an attempt to create environments worthy of all our children.

Welcome to Humanity & Health Foundation (HHF) Toolbox — a free, online collection of local public health tools produced by members of the public health community. Tools within the Toolbox are materials and resources public health professionals and other external stakeholders can use to inform and improve their work in the promotion and advancement of public health objectives.

Current examples of tools include, but are not limited to case examples, checklists, presentations, fact sheets, drills, evaluations, protocols, templates, reports, and training materials.
