Overview

The Community Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force) is an independent, non-Federal, uncompensated panel of public health and prevention experts whose mandate is to identify community preventive programs, services, and policies that save American lives and dollars, increase longevity, and improve quality of life. To date, the Task Force has made 228 findings and recommendations about interventions to promote healthful lifestyles, encourage a healthy environment, and help ensure that all Americans have access to early, affordable, and appropriate treatment—all of which are vital to
• Promoting the public’s health;
• Reducing disease, disability, and injury;
• Decreasing long-term healthcare costs; and
• Reducing employers’ and government costs (e.g., employer-sponsored coverage, Medicare, Medicaid, and other social service programs) related to preventable diseases, disabilities, and injuries.
Task Force recommendations, and the systematic reviews of the evidence on which they are based, are compiled in The Community Guide (www.thecommunityguide.org). These evidence-based recommendations are not mandates for compliance or spending. Instead, they provide information for decision makers and stakeholders wanting to allocate resources effectively to protect and improve people’s health; reduce future demand for healthcare spending that is driven by preventable disease and disability; and increase the productivity and competitiveness of the United States (U.S.) workforce.
The intent of this report and future reports to Congress is to feature the efforts of the Task Force related to a topic of high relevance to reducing the burden that preventable disease, injury, and disability places on individuals, families, businesses, communities, and the health system. For this report, cardiovascular disease (CVD)—commonly known as “heart disease and stroke”—is the focal point. CVD is the nation’s number one killer of both men and women. The report describes how the Task Force arrives at proven, evidence-based recommendations for ways to strengthen public health efforts to prevent CVD, save lives, and make better use of our health resources. The report additionally highlights where research and program evaluation are needed to fill gaps in the evidence, to further prevent and reduce CVD. The report also summarizes the full list of prevention opportunities reviewed by the Task Force, lists key accomplishments since the last report to Congress, and lays out priorities and plans for coming years.
