Prevention and Public Health Funding

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has announced the availability of $40 million in Fiscal Year 2011 funding from the Prevention and Public Health Fund "to strengthen and better coordinate activities within state health departments aimed at preventing chronic diseases and promoting health."

This initiative targets the nation's five leading chronic disease-related causes of death and disability: heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes and arthritis. It is designed to improve health by promoting environmental and policy changes related to nutrition, physical activity and clinical preventive services and by promoting education and management skills for people diagnosed with or at high risk for chronic diseases.

Funds will be awarded for three-year coordinated statewide chronic disease programs in every state and the District of Columbia, with approximately $40 million available for the first 12-month budget period.
