Working with the CSDH conceptual framework for policy intervention
In this workshop at the National Collaborating Centres for Public Health 2008 Summer Institute, Val Morrison presented a case study of a community organization to illustrate how the World Health Organization's Commission on the Social Determinants of Health's (CSDH's) conceptual framework can help us to understand policy interventions.

This presentation was part of a plenary session examining how different perspectives (social, political, cultural, etc.) on social determinants inform each other and help support a coordinated, coherent, and comprehensive or whole-of-government approach to addressing health status and disparities in population health.

Some of the issues for policy intervention examined in relation to the framework:  

  • How community organizations are/can be involved in the policy process
  • The types of intervention in which community organizations can be involved
  • How these organizations act on the social determinants of health 
  • The types of partnerships that public health actors might form with community organizations
