State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors, and Promote School health Cooperative Agreement

About the Program

CDC’s Division of Diabetes Translation (DDT) funds state local health departments to support programs and activities to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes and to improve health outcomes for people diagnosed with diabetes.

This cooperative agreement funded all 50 states and the District of Columbia to carry out work on diabetes; heart disease and stroke; nutrition, physical activity, and obesity; and school health. States used 1305 funding to implement activities in four focus areas, called domains.

Four Domains of Chronic Disease Prevention Cooperative Agreement (1305)
Domain Purpose
1. Epidemiology and Surveillance Monitor trends and track progress.
2. Environmental Approaches Change policies and physical surroundings to reinforce healthful behaviors and expand access to healthy choices.
3. Health Care System Interventions Improve the effective delivery and use of clinical and other high-value preventive services.
4. Community Programs Linked to Clinical Services Connect community and clinical sectors to improve population health.

Diabetes Prevention and Control Activities Under State Public Health Actions – 1305

Under State Public Health Actions – 1305, CDC addressed diabetes management and type 2 diabetes prevention with an emphasis on two of the domains – supporting health care system interventions (Domain 3) and community programs linked to clinical services (Domain 4).

  • Increase use of diabetes and other chronic disease self-management programs in community settings.
  • Increase participation in CDC-recognized organizations under the National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) to prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes in those with prediabetes.
  • Increase use of community health workers and pharmacists in the community in support of self-management of high blood pressure and diabetes.
