Balancing health and everyday life

We understand that it can be hard for people to make decisions about health in the full context of their lives. The founder of Public Health Connected co-created a new proprietary framework called Supportive and Accessible Framework for Effective Risk-Reduction (SAFER). This framework uses a compassionate approach to help people feel more in control of their health, while considering all of their other needs.

Advantages of our approach

  • Provides evidence-based and culturally relevant information, developed by public health experts with input from community members
  • Increases personal agency, self-efficacy, and sense of control
  • Includes components that are both action-oriented and educational
  • Tailors information to make it more applicable and user-friendly for people


Our first program focuses on COVID-19. We saw people struggling to protect their health during the pandemic, and developed a free tool called SAFER COVID-19. The tool walks people through a step-by-step process to make a plan to stay safer in their daily lives. This helps them lower their chance of getting COVID-19.

Our SAFER COVID-19 website includes SAFER COVID-19 as an interactive web-based tool, and as a downloadable, printable workbook. It also provides educational resources to help people successfully implement their plans. Our partner toolkit provides promotion materials ready to use on your website, social media channels, and more.
