Health Policies 101

Policy 101 section aims to provide overarching policy-making information that could be taken by each jurisdiction and customized, depending on the needs, resources and customary practices of the jurisdiction.

The goal of this section is to provide a concrete and valuable resource for individuals, government agencies and community-based organizations in the United States Affiliated Pacific Islands (USAPI) in activities related to health policy-making in the local and national level. Containing six subparts, each addressing components related to health policy planning and implementation processes, this section aims to be a one-stop resource for all USAPI policy-related needs.

Policy 101 is broken down into 6 subparts:

(1) Policy 101

(2) Things to Consider: Intended and Unintended Consequences of Policies

Focusing on the general to specific steps in the policy-making process—from departmental assessments, garnering support from key stakeholders, drafting a bill, and ultimately, to passing and implementation

(3) Capacity Building

(4) Appendices

(5) Supplemental Materials

(6) Additional Resources
