This document provides guidance to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)-funded state health departments about their important role in informing and evaluating policy to prevent injuries and violence through active participation in the policy process.
These reports compile injury data voluntarily collected by state health departments. It consolidates data from hospital records, death certificates, and several national surveillance systems and provides the rates of various injuries and related factors. Findings presented can help states determine their individual injury prevention program priorities; identify prevention needs; and can be used to evaluate the effectiveness of program activities and problems that require further investigation.
This document presents examples of how state health departments are achieving results in preventing injuries and violence in their populations. It contains one prevention and impact example from each state. Collectively, the examples illustrate the many issues faced by state health departments in injury and violence prevention, and show the equally multifaceted responses for such public health problems. This document was developed by the State and Territorial Injury Prevention Directors Association (STIPDA) and the Association of State and Territorial Health Officials (ASTHO) through the support of CDC.
