This Compendium shares with the field what we have learned about community-level progress from four years of implementing, testing, and observing the BUILD principles in action in communities across the US. It is critical reading for practitioners and leaders looking to move resources, attention, and action upstream—to make meaningful change in the complex systems that affect health in our communities. We continue to learn how BUILD is catalyzing change and plan to share more with the field as our evidence base grows for systems change using this framework.
This Compendium contains four sections:
» Systems Change Brief—an overview of our findings on how implementation of the BUILD model leads to the precursors to systems change and sustainable, systems change outcomes.
» Spotlight on Health Equity—a deeper dive into the common successes and challenges BUILD sites experienced in integrating a health equity framework into their BUILD initiatives.
» Spotlight on Partnership Health— a deeper dive into the common successes and challenges BUILD sites experienced in building broad, multi-sector, nontraditional partnerships.
» Spotlight on Community Engagement—a deeper dive into the common successes and challenges BUILD sites experienced in building authentic and sustainable community engagement and ownership.
