Elements of a Healthy Community


What Comprises a Healthy Community? "A healthy community is one where people have the opportunity to make healthy choices, in environments that are safe, free from violence, and designed to promote health. Factors that influence health range from early childhood education to quality housing and jobs and include many other areas of community development such as financial inclusion, access to health clinics and healthy food, sustainable energy, and transportation."
