What is Policy, Systems, and Environmental Change?
Healthy behaviors never happen in a vacuum.
We all make choices that affect our health. These choices are shaped by the policies and organizations (or “systems”) in our communities, and the physical and social environments in which we live.
- A teen is less likely to smoke when his community enacts laws to limit youth tobacco access.
- A parent is more likely to vaccinate her child to prevent HPV infection when a medical provider recommends the vaccine.
- A family is more likely to get the exercise they need when their neighborhood includes safe sidewalks and parks.
These behaviors—and many, many more—reduce our risk of cancer and improve our health.
When we improve policies, systems, and environments, we can create lasting health improvements for everyone.
