Why give to Prevention Institute?
Prevention Institute is a nonprofit organization that was founded as the national center for developing and advancing the practice of primary prevention. We strive to shift the overarching mindset and approach to health from one that focuses solely on treating sick individuals, to one that prevents disease, violence and injury before they occur. We are building a movement to transform communities to support health and safety in the first place, by bolstering the conditions and factors that foster resilience and wellbeing.
- Only prevention can significantly reduce the number of people who get sick and injured in the first place. Prevention is crucial for saving lives and suffering, solving the healthcare crisis, reducing the burden of healthcare costs, and achieving equitable health outcomes.
- A good solution solves multiple problems. We work across Focus Areas, including violence prevention, healthy eating and activity environments, health reform, injury prevention, mental health, community health, and health equity.
- Prevention Institute has spent the past 20 years focusing exclusively on prevention and equity. We have built a movement for prevention and established a strong foundation for future prevention efforts.
