The Community Guide – a great resource for Preventive Health Measures

 The Community Guide covers a variety of health topics including Asthma and Diabetes along with Immunizations.

 The Community Guide:              The Guide to Community Preventive Services (The Community Guide)

The Guide to Community Preventive Services is a free resource to help you choose programs and policies to improve health and prevent disease in your community. Systematic reviews are used to answer these questions:

  • Which program and policy interventions have been proven effective?
  • Are there effective interventions that are right for my community?
  • What might effective interventions cost; what is the likely return on investment?
