Advancing a System of Prevention that Achieves Health and Wellbeing for All
What does it take to realize the vision of health and safety for all? Drawing from the core elements of prevention successes that dramatically reduced the impact of infectious diseases in the early twentieth century, as well as contemporary examples, including alcohol and tobacco prevention, childhood injury prevention, and communitywide violence prevention, the System of Prevention framework outlines a strategic, systematic approach to the prevention of illness and injury and promotion of health equity.
System of Prevention is meant to inspire thinking, stimulate dialogue, and catalyze collaboration among health and community leaders and across a broad range of sectors whose policies, practices, and decisions impact health and safety. It is a flexible approach that can be applied to today’s most challenging health concerns, from climate change to sexual harassment and assault, to the opioid epidemic.
