Public Health Agenda
A National Public Health Agenda for Lupus (the Agenda) was released in late 2015 to help prioritize public health efforts to improve the care and quality of life for people living with lupus. The first of its kind, the Agenda was developed with the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors, the Lupus Foundation of America, and other stakeholders, that include public health professionals, lupus experts, clinicians and individuals living with the disease. The Agenda outlines a broad public health approach to lupus diagnosis, disease management, treatment, and research. Read A National Public Health Agenda for LupusCdc-pdfExternal.
