Community Health Action Pack

For a health promotion project to have the best chance of success, it needs good planning. Planning a health promotion project requires patience, trust in others and good communication skills. It also requires a well-thought-out project plan which can be easily referred to, updated and changed as the project takes shape.

The Community Health Action Pack is made up of four parts:
Part 1: Ten Steps to Planning a Health Promotion Project
Part 2: Project Planning Templates
Part 3: Running Your Project
Part 4: Health Promotion Resources

Hints and tips will help you to plan your health promotion activity. When you see the pencil at the end of each step, it’s time to head over to the planning templates. Print off each template as they are designed to be used over and over again.
