    In public health, a key challenge is moving from accurate monitoring to effective intervention. Selected findings for health determinants and outcomes were reported in the CDC Health Disparities and Inequalities Report—United States, 2011; a second report was released in 2013. This supplement is a companion to the two earlier health disparity reports. It highlights health interventions included in those reports that are proven effective or show promise in reducing health disparities.

    Taken together, these three reports offer real-world examples of how public health programs can achieve their intended impact.
