Health Extension Toolkit

Health Extension is a method of helping communities, and the primary care practices that serve them, to overcome barriers to transformation by sharing common resources including local expertise coupled with the technical resources of universities, health departments and social services agencies available during and after the transformation. The Health Extension Toolkit is aimed at states, academic health centers, professional societies and Tribal Nations so they might adopt aspects of health extension’s transformational learning relevant to their own purpose and objectives. This Toolkit was put together from the experiences of 18 states– rural and urban, from all regions of the country– that are pioneering this new concept.
