Promote participation in community planning and decision-making for health

How to implement

  • Involve community members from the outset in planning and decision-making, especially those who are directly affected by issues. Continue to involve them throughout the process.
    • Incorporate community feedback throughout a project’s lifecycle, including individuals with lived experience. See the Learning from Experience strategies for additional information on stakeholder engagement.
  • Build trust by fostering shared ownership and responsibility for program goals and objectives. 

Did you know: When you build relationships from the beginning, you set a strong foundation for future partnerships. Remember, relationship development takes time, so plan accordingly.
