Integrating Evidence-Based Resources for Chronic Disease Prevention
Public health practitioners must undertake multi-level prevention approaches to reduce the burden of chronic disease. Resources such as Healthy People 2020, the National Prevention Strategy (NPS), The Community Guide, the Health in All Policies framework (HiAP), and Community Health Improvement Planning (CHIP) offer a shared vision for wellness that local health departments (LHDs) can build upon to prevent chronic disease using the best
available evidence. However, some LHDs find it challenging to figure out how to apply the multitude of approaches recommended in these resources to their day-to-day prevention efforts. This site offers LHDs guidance for integrating Healthy People 2020, the National Prevention Strategy (NPS), The Community Guide, NACCHO's HiAP Toolbox, and CHIP into a uniform approach for achieving health and wellness in the jurisdictions they serve.
