Prevention Agenda 2013-2018: Preventing Chronic Diseases Action Plan
- Recommended evidence-based programs, policies and practices have been identified for each action plan and organized by focus area and goal. For each recommended program, policy or practice, a brief description is given along with links to assist with implementation. Journal articles can be accessed from the New York State Library or Dickerman Library.
- The Prevention Agenda has been updated with new evidence based programs, policies and practices to help local communities address local priorities. These are based in the criteria used to compile the recommendations reported on in the Update Survey completed in December 2015. The goal of this revision is to provide local communities with a "fresh" set of interventions that offer local communities the best prospects of making meaningful progress in addressing chosen priorities. For each recommended intervention, the charts include short-term process measures to assess progress, as well as resources describing evidence-informed policies, programs and systems changes that will improve the variety of factors known to affect health.
