NPS Strategic Directions

To achieve the goals of the NPS, the Strategy identifies four (4) Strategic Directions and seven (7) target Priorities.  Providing a foundation for all of the nation’s prevention efforts, the Strategic Directions include recommendations to build a prevention-oriented society.

  • Healthy and Safe Communities
  • Clinical and Preventive Services
  • Empowered People
  • Elimination of Health Disparities

Within this framework, the Priorities provide evidence-based recommendations that are most likely to reduce the burden of the leading causes of preventable death and disease.  The seven priorities are:

  • Tobacco Free Living
  • Preventing Drug Abuse and Excessive Alcohol Use
  • Healthy Eating
  • Active Living
  • Injury and Violence Free Living
  • Reproductive and Sexual Health.
  • Mental and Emotional Well-Being
