Health Prevention and Public Health Programs in the Affordable Care Act

Trust for America's Health

(August 2010) The historic 2010 health reform will revolutionize disease and injury prevention in the United States. For the first time in our country, we will have a National Prevention and Public Health Promotion Strategy to lay out a vision and road map for improving the health of Americans and a substantial Prevention and Public Health Fund to provide the ongoing support and research needed to successfully implement the strategy.

This collection of resources, available here,  includes:
* Preventive health care
* Proven disease prevention programs in communities
* Implementation of the Affordable Care Act regarding prevention
* Protecting the Prevention and Public Health Fund
