This book is a primary resource on how to improve health and prevent disease in states and communities. The book uses systemic review methods to evaluate population-oriented health interventions. The recommendations of the Task Force on Community Preventive Services are explicitly linked to the scientific evidence developed during systematic reviews. This book examines the effectiveness and efficiency of interventions to combat such risky behaviors as tobacco use, physical inactivity, and violence; to reduce the impact and suffering of specific conditions such as cancer, diabetes, vaccine-preventable diseases, and motor vehicle injuries; and to address social determinants on health such as education, housing, and access to care. The chapters are grouped into three broad categories: changing risk behaviors; reducing specific diseases, injuries, and impairments; and methodological background for the book itself.

Keywords: health interventions; systematic reviews; tobacco use; physical activity; violence; cancer; diabetes; vaccine-preventable diseases; motor vehicle injuries; social determinants

Book.  542 pages.  Illustrated.
