Public education, advocacy, and community-based programs can be very powerful vehicles for improving health. There is growing recognition that such efforts are most effective when driven by specific information about communities. Local-level health information can guide local action in support of policy changes and improve the effectiveness of programs. It can also highlight the existence of problems in a community and opportunities for improvement.
