A population health perspective provides a research framework to better understand and address the health and well being of communities. Population health focuses on identifying the determinants of health, disease, and well being in populations, designing and implementing preventive interventions that promote the health and well being of populations, and measuring their effectiveness.
Purpose. The Center for Urban Population Health realizes this through multidisciplinary, multi-institutional, multi stakeholder partnerships which use a systematic approach to learn and address population health disparities that fall along the translational continuum from health sciences to community. This includes engaging in the community and including stakeholders from every level in the process.
Guided by current evidence, this approach has the promise of innovation and community impact. Equally important to this approach is the knowledge transfer that takes place among partners and between stakeholders.
Framework. This website provides an environment that aims to promote and accelerate local knowledge transfer. We have categorized the many reports and publications into health determinants or outcomes based on the population health framework model below. The interconnectedness of health determinants and health outcomes is moderated and influenced by policies, programs, and practices
