Building Multisectoral Partnerships for Population Health and Health Equity
This figure displays the 5 components of a framework for collaborative
public health in action and 12 associated collaborative processes. Part A is
assessment and collaborative planning and the associated collaborative processes: 1)
analyzing information about the problem/goals, 2) establishing a vision and mission,
3) developing a framework or logic model, and 4) developing and using
strategic/action plans. Part B is implementing targeted action and the associated
collaborative processes: 5) defining organizational structure and operating
mechanisms, 6) developing leadership, and 7) arranging for community
mobilization. Part C is changing conditions in communities and systems and the
associated collaborative processes: 8) implementing effective interventions, and
9) assuring technical assistance. Part D is achieving widespread change in
behaviors and the associated collaborative processes: 10) documenting progress
and using feedback. Part E is improving population health and
health equity and associated collaborative processes: 11) making outcomes matter
and 12) sustaining the work.
Figure 1. The sequential, iterative, and interactive
components (A-E) of a framework that guides communities' work to improve
population health and 12 collaborative processes associated with the components.
This framework is adapted from the Institute of Medicine framework for
collaborative public health action (4).

This figure shows the percentage of obese children from 2010 to 2019. The rates
(shown by open circles) are 20% for 2011, 18% for 2012, 22% for 2013, and 20%
for 2014. A
word box shows that a grant was given to establish a prevention coalition in
2014, at which time the prevention initiative started. This is
indicated by a vertical line. The cumulative community changes brought about by
the initiative are shown by closed circles. The number of cumulative community
changes each year from 2015 to 2018 are 50 for 2015, 100 for 2016; 130 for 2017; and
150 for 2018. The percentage of obese children continues to be shown after the start
of the initiative in 2014 as open circles. The lower annual rates are 15%
13% for 2016, 16% for 2017, and 13% for 2018. A word box shows that a
implemented in 2016.

practice) facilitated by a partnership to prevent childhood obesity and
associated improvement in a population-level outcome (ie, percentage of children
obese or overweight).
