Community-based participatory research contributions to intervention research: The intersection of science and practice to improve health equity

Community-based participatory research: A strategy for building healthy communities and promoting health through policy change
Community-based, participatory research is a change strategy that involves citizens and researchers, equitably. This report outlines eight promising practices drawn from American experiences, presents six case studies, and directs the reader to dozens of tools and resources.
The 12 tools in this toolkit are designed to help practitioners, managers and researchers identify health equity research needs, and use existing research to advocate for health equity-oriented policy or program change.
While research is growing about effective ways to improve health equity, action lags behind. This resource describes six knowledge to action models that can help you translate evidence in a way that promotes and supports action on the social determinants of health.
