Community engagement is becoming an increasingly popular component included in the development and implementation of public health interventions. Involved community members take on roles that range from merely being informed, to being consulted, to collaborating or leading on the design, delivery and evaluation of public health strategies. This review examines the use of public health interventions with a community engagement component, particularly for its use in reducing health inequities among disadvantaged populations. Findings of the review suggest community engagement in public health interventions has an effect on several health outcomes, including health behaviours and self-efficacy. This webinar will examine the effectiveness and components of public health interventions that include community engagement and the impact on health outcomes.
