Partnership of Prevention

Strategic Partner

 

Partnership for Prevention was founded in 1991 by leaders dedicated to making disease prevention and health promotion a national priority and America a healthier nation. Partnership seeks to increase understanding and use of clinical preventive services and population-based prevention to improve health.
 
Partnership’s unique blend of members and leaders helps unite diverse interests in support of strong prevention policies. Partnership’s members include corporations, trade associations, non-governmental organizations, patient groups, associations of health professionals, healthcare delivery organizations, and government agencies.
 
 
VISION
 
A country where all people are given the opportunity to live long and healthy lives and achieve their maximum potential.
 
 
MISSION
 
We seek to create a “prevention culture” in America, where the prevention of disease and the promotion of health, based on the best scientific evidence, is the first priority for policy makers, decision-makers and practitioners who can make a difference in this area.
 
 
GOALS
 
Partnership seeks to create an America:
Where everyone who can benefit from clinical preventive services does so;
Where population-based prevention is integrated into policies and programs at every level and makes the greatest possible contribution to the public’s health;
In which the business community is fully engaged in supporting disease prevention and health promotion for its employees and communities.
We accomplish this by:
Analyzing leading edge scientific research to identify effective polices and practices that should be adopted to accelerate progress towards better health for all Americans;
Convening diverse healthcare stakeholders and facilitating dialogue among them to assess critical issues, find mutually agreeable solutions, and set priorities for public and private sector action;
Educating decision-makers in every sector about innovative prevention policies and practices, providing analytical tools to aide implementation, and advocating for the adoption of these approaches.  
 
OUR UNIQUE IDENTITY
 
Partnership is the leading national non-profit health organization that is:
Dedicated to prevention across all risk factors and diseases, in both clinical and population settings;  
Dedicated to evidence-based prevention grounded in “value” (as described below);  
Comprised of leaders from the business community, the health sector, health voluntaries, and government; 
Committed to advocating for prevention to a wide array of audiences, including policy makers, business leaders, healthcare organizations, and healthcare professionals.  
 
VALUE OF PREVENTION
 
Partnership defines the “value” of prevention in four ways. Prevention:
Lowers the burden of disease;
Is cost-effective, i.e., it provides substantial improvement in health for the dollars invested;
Increases the efficiency of healthcare spending;
Contributes to creating a more productive and prosperous America.
