Group Meeting at a Table

The National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention program supported national organizations in working with communities to improve health.

The National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention program was a 3-year initiative that helped national organizations and local networks promote healthy communities, prevent chronic diseases, and reduce health disparities.

In 2014, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) awarded $9.37 million to five national organizations representing two categories.

  • Category A: Community Capacity-Building and Implementation awardees will use more than 75% of their budget to fund two cohorts of 15-20 sub-recipients, from among their chapters/affiliates, to develop or strengthen their coalitions and to implement locally driven plans that address one or more chronic disease factors.
  • Category B: Dissemination and Training awardees will develop and monitor tools and trainings (e.g., educational guides, toolkits, newsletters) to support funded chapters/affiliates and their community coalitions in improving health locally.

Approach to Improving Health

This initiative supported communities in implementing population-based strategies that address the greatest predictors of chronic disease, including:

  • Tobacco use and exposure.
  • Physical inactivity.
  • Poor nutrition.
  • Lack of access to chronic disease prevention, risk reduction, and disease management opportunities.

Examples of activities include:

  • Working collaboratively to coordinate strategies and maximize the collective impact on community health.
  • Increasing national and local awareness of community health.
  • Ensuring that funded communities increase their capacity and achieve sustainable improvements.
  • Protecting people from secondhand smoke exposure in indoor and outdoor spaces.
  • Increasing opportunities for physical activity and promoting nutrition guidelines for healthy eating.
