The purpose of the Health Equity Toolkit is to increase the capacity of state health departments and their partners to work with and through communities to implement effective responses to obesity. The toolkit provides a six-step process for planning, implementing, and evaluating a program to address obesity disparities. Each section contains, a) a description of the step and suggested evidence-informed actions, b) tools for carrying out activities, and c) a real-world case study of a successful state-level effort to address obesity with a focus on health equity.
