California Planners, members and non-members of the American Planning Association, value the critical involvement of public health professionals in planning processes. The Planners4Health California Initiative serves as the knowledge and practice bridge linking planners and public health professionals to achieve healthier, more inclusive and equitable communities.
“California planners have been leaders in making communities healthier places to live.
The Planners4Health initiative provides a great opportunity to build an even
stronger connection between planners and public health professionals.”

Advancing a System of Prevention to Achieve Health Equity
What does it take to realize the vision of health, safety, and wellbeing for all? Drawing from successful initiatives that dramatically increased the length and quality of people’s lives, Prevention Institute developed the System of Prevention framework to support health leaders and their partners to delve into systems-level work as they innovate, build practice, advance policy and systems changes, and generate momentum for comprehensive prevention and health equity.
