Effective partnerships are essential for community-based solutions for advancing health equity by making it a shared vision and value, increasing the community’s capacity to shape outcomes, and fostering multi-sector collaboration. Many different stakeholders can lead or participate in championing and implementing such solutions. Partners are able to deploy unique skills and access resources to serve a variety of roles in community-based solutions for health equity. In a healthy community, communication and collaboration among various sectors of the community and the contributions of ethically, socially and economically diverse community members are valued. In addition, the broad array of determinants of health is considered and addressed, and individuals make informed, positive choices in the context of health-protective and supportive environments, policies and systems. Community resources are assets in a community that help meet certain needs for those around them. These resources can be essential in developing skills post-discharge by helping the client diversify their range of outlets of support, expression and natural self-development. In order to effectively serve a community, it is important to understand the community. This understanding can be achieved through a community assessment. The findings from an assessment will define the extent of the needs that exist in a community and the depth of the assets available within the community to address those needs. This understanding of needs and assets can be used to strategically plan and deliver relevant, successful, and timely services.
