Using Evidence-Based Criteria and an Equity Lens to Maximize Public Health Policy Impact: Model Shared and Lessons Learned

Stephanie Tama-Sweet
Senior Foundation Relations Advisor – Advocacy
American Heart Association

Policy and systems changes are critical strategies for moving large segments of the population towards better health. Organizations contemplating policy work must consider criteria for whether the proposed policy change will have its intended impact, as well as avoid any unintended consequences from those policy interventions. The American Heart Association uses scientific evidence and a health equity lens to prioritize its advocacy positions, and has outlined lessons learned when working to improve the health of our most vulnerable communities.
