National Prevention Council Commitments: Accelerating Prevention

One role of the National Prevention Council is to ensure federal health and prevention efforts are coordinated, aligned, and championed. The National Prevention Council has identified specific areas in which prevention can be accelerated through the combined efforts of all 20 National Prevention Council departments.

The National Prevention Council commitments include the following:

  • Identify opportunities to consider prevention and health within its departments and encourage partners to do so voluntarily as appropriate.
  • Increase tobacco free environments within its departments and encourage partners to do so voluntarily as appropriate.
  • Increase access to healthy, affordable food within its departments and encourage partners to do so voluntarily as appropriate.
