Prevention and Public Health Policy

Health and well-being involve more than treating illness.  Fostering optimal health means understanding the factors that lead to both illness and health.  A modern public health system serves as a community’s chief health strategist.  Such a system uses the best available evidence to inform strategies, policies and programs to improve and protect the health and well-being of the communities it serves.

TFAH’s mission is to report on and help amplify evidence-based programs and policies that promote healthy behaviors and support conditions in communities, schools and workplaces that foster health and well-being.  Our work is designed to advance a national public health system that supports optimal health for every person and community, resolves health disparities and is centered on prevention.
