DEFINITION OF COALITION: For this database, we are using the following definition of a coalition: a group of organizations whose members commit to an agreed upon purpose and shared decision-making to influence an external institution or target, while each member organization maintains its own autonomy.

In our sphere of community health, the ‘agreed purpose’ is to improve conditions and outcomes related to the health and well-being of entire communities.
