Four Domains of Chronic Disease Prevention

The CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion developed a framework to address risk factors for chronic disease on both the individual and the population level. The CDC emphasizes the importance of working at both levels and optimizing the efficiency and efficacy of public health initiatives. The recommended prevention efforts are in four key domains. Doing so helps organize, focus, and strengthen public health programs, enhance expertise, address gaps in services and build collaboration. NMCOA is using the domains to outline this strategic plan.
