In 2016, the NCCDH completed audience and partner surveys, designed with our external evaluator, to help us understand our intended audiences’ and partners’ engagement with the NCCDH. The surveys sought to gage perceptions of quality, relevance, credibility and expertise; influence on capacity; and contributions to organizational changes.
Advocacy is both an important strategy and practice within public health. These NCCDH resources highlight how advocacy can contribute to addressing the social determinants of health and improving health equity.
