Module 4: Implementation Considerations for Rural Programs Addressing Social Determinants of Health
This module presents cross-cutting implementation considerations to guide rural organizations as they work to
address social determinants of health (SDOH) in their communities. Evidence-based and promising models to
address SDOH should be tailored to fit the community. Programs that work well in one rural community may not
have the same success in another community.
For more specific considerations for implementing particular program models or approaches, see Program Models. For an overview of possible implementation
challenges, including special population considerations, see Introduction
to Social Determinants of Health.
For a general overview of rural program implementation, see Implementing a Rural Community Health
Program in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
