California's Health in All Policies Task Force, facilitated by the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and comprised of 18 state agencies, was established by gubernatorial executive order in February 2010 to identify state-level actions to create healthier, more sustainable communities. The session will provide an overview of the Task Force's work to date, with an emphasis on CDPH's lessons learned from facilitating an innovative interagency collaboration for health. The lessons learned will encompass making the case for a Health in All Policies approach, resource needs, tips for establishing non-traditional partnerships and obtaining buy-in from non-health agencies, and engaging with stakeholders, with an aim to provide a replicable model for public health professionals interested in undertaking a Health in All Policies approach.
