Just Released: Prevention Status Reports


Prevention Status Reports

Today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released the newest Prevention Status Reports (PSRs), which highlight the status of policies and practices designed to address 10 important public health problems.
Individual reports are available for all 50 states and the District of Columbia on 10 key health topics:
  • Alcohol-Related Harms
  • Food Safety
  • Healthcare-Associated Infections
  • Heart Disease and Stroke
  • HIV
  • Motor Vehicle Injuries
  • Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity
  • Prescription Drug Overdose
  • Teen Pregnancy
  • Tobacco Use
Each report describes the public health problem, identifies potential solutions to the problem drawn from research and expert recommendations, and reports the status of those solutions for each state and the District of Columbia, using a simple, three-level rating scale—green, yellow, or red.
The PSR website offers the following features:
  • An interactive map that leads directly to individual reports for each state
  • State Summary tables that outline the full set of policy and practice ratings for each state
  • A National Summary that shows aggregate ratings across all states and DC for each policy or practice for 2015, along with bar charts comparing aggregate ratings for 2013 and 2015 where applicable
  • A Quick Start Guide to help state health officials and other public health leaders use the PSRs to advance the use of evidence-based public health policy and practice in their state
  • Answers to frequently asked questions (FAQs)
  • A PSR Fact Sheet
