Background

The National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) works with local health departments to promote the inclusion and engagement of people with disabilities in all public health programs, products, outreach, and services.

NACCHO encourages health departments to include people with disabilities when creating and delivering health promotion activities. This fact sheet provides five action steps for local health officials to ensure that the development and delivery of health promotion programs and activities are inclusive and accessible.

NACCHO also recommends the Guidelines for Disability Inclusion in Physical Activity, Nutrition, and Obesity Programs and Policies Implementation Manual to inform disability inclusion in community health promotion strategies.
