Abstract

Community organizing is a key action for health promotion. In this Webinar I introduce two intervention studies. The first one is an intervention study aimed to increase healthy food choices in local restaurants, using the local platform of the partnerships between municipality governments and local enterprises (restaurants). In the second study, we evaluated the effectiveness of community organizing supports for municipality staff members on older adults’ social activities. With these examples, I discuss about effective ways of creating evidence for equitable health policies in community settings. Although randomized controlled trials are recommended for evidence creation, it is quite costly and has some limitations. Our alternative approaches in the real-world settings may be other useful options.
