The BUILD Health Challenge

Introduction

This spotlight summarizes findings from interviews with seven of the eighteen sites that were part of the first cohort of BUILD Health Challenge grantees. This research revealed that collaboration yields many benefits for the partners’ work—from sharing resources to driving action and progress.

The BUILD Health Challenge (BUILD) promotes collaboration among partners in healthcare, governmental public health, and community-based nonprofit organizations to more effectively achieve their goals. Together, they boldly address upstream determinants of disease, such as food insecurity, youth violence, housing, and economic development in an effort to give everyone the chance to be healthy. The report presents best practices for cross-sector collaboration as well as notes for funders interested in cultivating this type of work. We invite you to creatively adapt this guidance to local circumstances and challenges so you can develop and maintain partnerships that improve public health. To learn more about the participating sites, see page 34. Share your ideas and stories around collaboration with us at info@buildhealthchallenge.org.
