The Guide to Community Preventive Services

What Works to Promote Health?

Task Force on Community Preventive Services
Edited by Stephanie Zaza, Peter A. Briss, and Kate W. Harris

This well-organized, clearly written text will become the gold standard for evidence-based public health. It will serve as a primary resource for helping to improve health and prevent disease, whether in states, communities, local organizations, healthcare organizations, worksites, or schools. In an entirely systematic way, it examines the effectiveness, economic efficiency, and feasibility of interventions to combat such risky behaviors as tobacco use, physical inactivity, and violence; to reduce the impact of specific conditions such as cancer, diabetes, vaccine-preventable diseases, and motor vehicle injuries, and to address social determinants of health such as education, housing, and access to care.
