Model Policies to Improve Health

The South Dakota Chronic Disease Partners Model Policy Workgroup develops policies to help you make positive changes in your community. Each one is evidence-based and can be adapted to fit your specific needs.

Learn how to improve the health of your community by developing and enforcing policies that can make a difference. Start by being clear about the issue you want to address. If you are creating a new policy– use our model policy resources in the following areas to help bring it to life:

  • Childcare
  • Healthcare
  • Community
  • School
  • Tribe
  • Workplace

You can also access our Model Policy Checklist—a helpful step-by-step tool that shows you how to plan and draft your policy, what should be included, and how to ensure its success.

Enacting a policy alone doesn’t ensure that the policy will be successful. Additional steps are often necessary along the way to increase the likelihood of the policy achieving its intended outcomes.
