New and Updated Strategies from What Works for Health

Adapted from County-by-County Blog by County Health Rankings & Roadmaps

Our What Works for Health database has over 400 evidence-informed policies and programs to make a difference in your community. On June 5, our What Works for Health analysts updated the database and you can now find new studies, implementation examples, and resources for the eleven strategies below:

  • Activity programs for older adults: offer group educational, social, creative, musical, or physical activities that promote social interactions, regular attendance, and community involvement among older adults.
  • Administrative license suspension/revocation laws: enable law enforcement to immediately take the license of a driver who fails or refuses to take a chemical test for alcohol.
  • Alternative fuels initiatives: support alternative fuel and vehicle use via financial incentives (e.g., tax benefits, rebates, etc.), mandates (e.g., consumption targets or renewable fuel standards), research and development investments, etc.
