Evidence-Based Resources and Measures

  • Centers for Disease Control (CDC) serves as the national focus for developing and applying disease prevention and control, environmental health, and health promotion and health education activities designed to improve the health of the people of the United States.
  • Healthy People 2020 provides a framework for prevention for the Nation. It is a statement of national health objectives designed to identify the most significant preventable threats to health and to establish national goals to reduce these threats. 
  • Trust for America’s Health (TFAH) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization dedicated to saving lives by protecting the health of every community and working to make disease prevention a national priority.
  • The Community Guide is a resource for evidence-based Task Force recommendations and findings about what works to improve public health.
  • What Works for Health is a database of policies and programs that can improve health. These policies and programs address key health factors that, in turn, improve health outcomes. This database is based on a wide scan of analyses assessing evidence of effectiveness. We summarize research about what does and does not work to help different stakeholders (such as public health practitioners, community organizations, businesses, schools, and others) identify policies and programs that could improve health.
