Healthy Communities Model

Communities are in various states of health. They can be distressed, vulnerable, and stable. Traditional models of community health focus on raising health levels from a distressed or vulnerable state to a stable situation. However, these models ignore the need to ensure that healthy communities become sustainable and resilient ones. The following model demonstrates that healthy communities can fall back into a distressed state without attention to generate a sustained health that is resilient to shocks to stability. It is important to note that resiliency should be conceptualized beyond emergency situations, as many current external threats to healthy communities are gradual or chronic in nature.

 

The Healthy Community Model is a holistic approach to community health, which includes the dimensions of:

 

Civic Health

Environmental Health

Individual Health

Community Health

Economic Health
