Health Reform
Partnership for Prevention has issued recommendations to make prevention an important part of national health reform. The recommendations build on Partnership’s “Principles for Prevention-Centered Health Reform,” which outline core principles for increasing the emphasis on health promotion and disease prevention in a reformed health system.

If implemented, the recommendations would significantly strengthen the role of disease prevention and health promotion in tackling the chronic diseases that are causing medical costs to spiral.  The recommendations describe actions Congress can take to ensure that both clinical preventive services and community preventive services play an important role in a reformed health system and that policy makers develop and track system performance standards related to prevention. 

Partnership’s recommendations were drawn from a series of policy papers commissioned from leading national public health authorities.
