Health equity and the built environment: A curated list

This resource is also available in French.

The NCCDH has collected a list of resources that public health can use to inform and support action on the built environment as a determinant of health inequities. The document includes nine resources organized around the four public health roles for improving health equity [1], which are as follows:

  • Assess and report on (a) the built environments contribution to health inequities and (b) effective strategies to reduce inequities through the built environment
  • Modify and orient built environment interventions to reduce inequities
  • Partner with other sectors to identify ways to improve health equity through the built environment
  • Participate in policy development for improvement in health inequities through the built environment

Links to additional resources are provided to further inform and support action related to the built environment. This curated list is not a comprehensive collection of research related to health equity and the built environment; rather, the purpose is to support public health action on the built environment with their four roles for improving health equity.
