Prevention and control of coronary heart disease and stroke--nomenclature for prevention approaches in public health: a statement for public health practice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention



Prevention and control of coronary heart disease and stroke--nomenclature for prevention approaches in public health: a statement for public health practice from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention



American Journal of Preventive Medicine 29(5 Suppl 1): 152-157



Successful prevention and control of coronary heart disease and stroke requires extensive collaboration and strategic partnerships with many health and non-health-related organizations and agencies in the voluntary, public, and private sectors. To assure a common language and purpose and to facilitate communication in these multiple settings, a simplified classification of prevention levels for public health practice is essential. This statement proposes three levels of prevention (health promotion, primary prevention, and secondary prevention) as a guide for public health practice. This statement is also intended to inform the design, implementation, and evaluation of programs and research initiatives that address the prevention and control of coronary heart disease and stroke, and to enhance communication and dialogue among health professionals, policymakers, and the public.
