Abstract

The Healthy Cities/Healthy Communities movement is in its second decade. Examples of both successful and unsuccessful Healthy Communities efforts can be found in large and small communities across the country. What are the key components of a successful effort? Movement leaders from California, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina as well as the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention have contributed their collective experience to identifying the key components of a statewide Healthy Communities effort. Assessing the degree to which a state has these key components in place can help the state take steps to assure support for Healthy Communities.
