When it comes to developing and implementing solutions to problems that affect our communities, evidence matters. Implementing or adapting proven strategies increases your likelihood of success in improving health.
Developed by experts at the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute, What Works for Health is an online tool that you can use to find policies and programs that have been shown to improve health.
What Works for Health is an easy-to-use, searchable menu of policies and programs focusing on factors that make communities healthier places to live, learn, work and play. You can choose a health factor of interest (i.e. tobacco use, employment, access to health care, environmental quality) and browse through the evidence ratings for particular programs, policies, or system changes that address the particular health factor of interest.
Together, the County Health Rankings & Roadmaps and the new What Works for Health give you a profile of your county’s health, guidance to take action, and information on evidence-informed strategies that can make your community a healthier place.
