Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

(1) To establish, maintain, and operate academic-based centers for high-quality research and demonstration with respect to health promotion and disease prevention; (2) to establish linkages, where applicable, between ongoing, basic research in a wide array of fields and applied research in disease prevention and health promotion; (3) to bring the knowledge and expertise of academic health centers to bear on practical public health problems; (4) to field test and rigorously evaluate more cost-effective methods and strategies for preventing unnecessary illness and promoting good health; and (5) to shorten the time lag between the development of new and proven effective disease prevention and health promotion techniques and their widespread application. 6) to involve the community in the development, conduct, and implementation of prevention research.
