Crafting Sustainable Public Health Policies Checklist


The "Crafting Sustainable Public Health Policies" checklist was developed by Change Lab Solutions. It provides a series of questions to determine if your policy goal is appropriate and feasible. It asks users to consider if the proposal is a policy or a program, if it is legally feasible, if there is data to support the policy, if the implementation is clear and feasible, if it accounts for disparities, if it is financially sustainable, if it changes the conversation, and if the policy is part of a bigger plan. This checklist could be utilized in a number of ways,  including when considering how to craft health in all policies or when considering proposed policies that impact health feasibility.
