CDC RESOURCES AND GUIDANCE
1305 Community programs linked to clinical services strategies and performance measures
State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (1305) is a CDC initiative that provides funding to 50 states and the District of Columbia to support statewide implementation of cross-cutting approaches to promote health and prevent and control chronic diseases and their risk factors.Four CDC programs work together through this program to support chronic disease prevention programs nationwide. Those programs are: diabetes; heart disease and stroke prevention; nutrition, physical activity, and obesity; and school health. These chronic diseases often happen at the same time and are the result of risk factors that are related. The strategies to prevent these health conditions are often similar and by combining approaches, public health programs can work together to be more impactful and efficient. This combined effort builds upon lessons learned in controlling diabetes, heart disease, and obesity, and promoting school health. States focus work in four areas:
- Epidemiology, surveillance, and evaluation to inform, prioritize, and monitor diseases and risk factors and the delivery of interventions.
- Environmental strategies that reinforce healthful behaviors and expand access to healthy choices.
- Health care systems interventions to improve the delivery and use of clinical and other preventive services.
- Community programs linked to clinical services to better support chronic disease self-management.
- Improve environments in worksites, schools, early childhood education services, state and local government agencies, and community settings to promote healthy behaviors. Also, to expand access to healthy choices for people of all ages related to diabetes, cardiovascular health, physical activity, healthy foods and beverages, obesity, and breastfeeding.
- Improve the delivery and use of quality clinical and other health services aimed at preventing and managing high blood pressure and diabetes.
- Increase links between community and clinical organizations to support prevention, self-management, and control of diabetes, high blood pressure, and obesity.
The program funds two components with project periods of up to 5 years. As of September 2014, all states and the District of Columbia are funded for the basic and enhanced components. For a list of states and funding amounts, visit the CDC website.
