Public/Private Partnerships in Health Promotion: A Guide for the Aging Network.
Atlanta Regional Commission, GA.
The aging network has been slow to embrace health promotion activities as core services to the aging population. Therefore, advocates for business and aging partnerships in health promotion activities must first educate their colleagues about the value of health promotion programs before looking for partners in the business community. The goal of health promotion is to prevent the premature onset of disease and disability. This guidebook is one in a series of publications on public/private partnerships. The ProHealth for Seniors Task Force is a community coalition in Georgia, that represents both public and private service organizations and the business community. Using the projects of the ProHealth for Seniors Task Force as examples, suggestions are offered to the aging network on developing partnerships in health promotion. Chapter 1 describes the development of partnerships and the elements that motivate both businesses and the aging network to collaborate. Chapter 2 discusses various types of partnerships and examples. Chapter 3 outlines steps for partnerships and offers tips on developing partnership strategies. Case studies are reviewed in Chapter 4. The appendix includes sample materials, such as brochures and other descriptive information. (JBJ)
