CAAHDER's Approach - TEACH

Translate
Obtaining input is not only important, but essential to overcome centralized health decisions and assist in  translating evidence-based programs and research into something that is truly relevant, useful, empowering and sustainable.

Educate 
It is important to increase the knowledge of health professionals, advocates, and community members on the systemic inequities and health disparities that impact health, and who is at the table in decision making about the health of their communities
Awareness
Most underserved, African American and vulnerable communities do not understand the public health processes that set their health agenda.
Collaborate
Engaging the voices of African Americans and vulnerable communities as well as building partnership in upstream and downstream community health planning and implementation is vital.
Help
Mistrust and suspicion are ongoing troupes engaging communities. Do something to help without asking for something in return.
