The Healthy Brain Initiative’s (HBI) State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia, The 2018-2023 Road Mappdf icon[PDF – 337 KB] charts a course for state and local public health agencies and their partners. The Road Map prepares all communities to act quickly and strategically by stimulating changes in policies, systems, and environments. Alignment of HBI Road Map actions with Essential Services of Public Health ensures that initiatives to address Alzheimer’s can be incorporated easily and efficiently into existing public health initiatives.
The four traditional domains of public health action items:
- Monitor and Evaluate
- Educate and Empower the Nation
- Develop Policies and Mobilize Partnerships
- Assure a Competent Workforce.
Public health agencies and private, nonprofit, and governmental partners at the national, state, and local levels are encouraged to work together on the actions to make Alzheimer’s the next public health success story.
Conceptual Framework for the Healthy Brain Initiative Road Map
State and Local Public Health Partnerships to Address Dementia: The 2018—2023 Road Map is informed by four Essential Services of Public Health: to assure a competent workforce, monitor and evaluate, develop policies and mobilize partnerships, and educate and empower the nation. Action within each of these four domains is guided by three core principles to best ensure health equity, collaboration across multiple sectors, and the need to leverage resources for sustained effect.
