Ohio's Plan to Prevent and Reduce Chronic Disease: 2014-2018

Ohio's Plan to Prevent and Reduce Chronic Disease: 2014-2018 (Chronic Disease Plan) is a five-year, priority-driven guide to prevent and reduce chronic disease in Ohio. It includes cross-cutting objectives to impact the policies, systems and environments influential to chronic disease outcomes and health behavior change.

The Ohio Department of Health has joined the Ohio Chronic Disease Collaborative and is excited to Get With The Plan. As a member of the Ohio Chronic Disease Collaborative, we are focused on:

  • Environmental Approaches - Making healthy behaviors easy and convenient for all Ohioans.
  • Health System Interventions - Improving the delivery and use of healthcare services in order to prevent disease, detect diseases earlier and manage risk factors.
  • Community-Clinical Linkages - Ensuring those with or at high risk for chronic diseases have access to community resources in order to best manage their disease or risk factors.
  • Data and Surveillance - Providing data to inform, prioritize, deliver and monitor programs and population health.

The Chronic Disease Plan, including the executive summary, is posted below. You can also view the plan's Chronic Disease Plan Promotional Toolkit and learn more about the Ohio Chronic Disease Collaborative.
