Community Health

 It is no secret that we are only as healthy as the environment around us.  This includes our household, biological environment, the company we keep, and our community.  The community can play a large role in the care of the people that reside in that community.  Integration is often based off of what the communities needs are and the 'readiness' of the community to have some type of integration of services and/or interventions.  Community health often emphasizes the elements of participation, capacity building, sustainability, empowerment and more.  In this section, you will find resources that have shown integration involving community health and often community-based health promotion.  [i]
