Guiding Principles

The AZ Health Zone supports collaborative partnerships that work toward building resilient communities using the lens of health equity.

For the next five years the program looks to deepen the Policy, System, and Environmental (PSE) impact in communities using multi-level interventions. This will be achieved through the following foundational principles based on the program’s guiding framework:

  1. Enhanced engagement in communities with limited resources for greater integration of programming and sustainability that meets their needs, strengths, and desires.
  2. The adoption of trauma-aware principles at each level of the program to ensure that interventions are meeting individuals and families where they are at and avoiding harm.
