September is Disease Prevention Month
Chronic diseases and conditions – such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, type 2 diabetes, obesity, chronic lung disease, and others – account for the most deaths in the United States and globally.
Just as most chronic diseases are caused or made worse by many of the same risk factors, they can be prevented or lessened by many of the same interventions.
The risk factors for chronic diseases can be addressed at two levels: the individual level (including health care interventions) and the population level (including policies and environments that promote health.) Working at both levels is essential.
Priorities for Prevention
- Prevent the development of chronic diseases.
- Detect chronic diseases early and slow their progression.
- Mitigate complications of chronic diseases to improve quality of life and to reduce demand on the health care system.
