Description:
This is the outcome of a process of discussions, learning and reflection that has taken place with the partners who formed the Building Healthy Communities Partnership Group. The Partnership Group, focusing on the West and South Offaly area, made a successful application to the Combat Poverty Agency’s Building Healthy Communities Programme in 2004. This funding was a catalyst to enhance the existing inter-agency approach, which resulted in the formation of a partnership steering group to address inequalities in health (including the broader social determinants of health within a population health model) using a community development approach.
