The way we build our communities has a significant impact on our health. Regional policies can provide the framework to build healthy communities at the local level. This project, which began in March 2010, lays the foundation for integrating public health goals, objectives, policies and performance measures into regional planning efforts. SANDAG took a major stride toward accomplishing this goal when it established a first-of-its-kind Public Health Stakeholders Group and created a draft health policy framework for incorporating public health goals, objectives, and performance measures into regional planning.
