Coaction Institute builds community and institutional capacity for working together to address factors that influence their community’s health (“social determinants of health”). It uses an upstream approach that brings together grassroots and institutional stakeholders, and supports inclusive public and institutional policies that generate both improved community health and an empowered citizenry.

To enhance these collaborative efforts, Coaction provides technical assistance and mentoring on how to integrate measurable community engagement strategies into programs and activities.
Coaction Institute is focused on advancing two priority initiatives:

  • the creation of a replicable interdisciplinary model for education in the social determinants of health
  • building health centers’ capacity to mentor grassroots community health leadership

Contact us to learn how our decades of experience might help further your efforts to improve the health of your community. We can help you integrate authentic multi-level, outcomes-focused community engagement strategies into your planning, implementation, and evaluation activities. Our team has experience working with hospitals, clinics, health & human service agencies, research institutes, community-based organizations and neighborhood groups in the U.S., Central & South America.
