  • Description:
    To implement Section 4001 of the Affordable Care Act, on June 10, 2010, President Obama signed an Executive Order creating the National Prevention, Health Promotion, and Public Health Council. The National Prevention Council, chaired by U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin provides coordination and leadership among 17 executive departments and agencies with respect to prevention, wellness, and health promotion activities. The Affordable Care Act also created the Advisory Group on Prevention, Health Promotion, and Integrative and Public Health (Prevention Advisory Group).

    The National Prevention Strategy: America’s Plan for Better Health and Wellness was released June 16, 2011. The National Prevention Strategy’s vision is “Working together to improve the health and quality of life for individuals, families, and communities by moving the nation from a focus on sickness and disease to one based on prevention and wellness.” The strategy has an overarching goal of increasing the number of Americans who are healthy at every stage of life and envisions a prevention-oriented society where all sectors contribute to the health of individuals, families, and society.

    This 2012 Annual Status Report highlights the activities and accomplishments of the National Prevention Council during this reporting period. It presents the National Prevention Council Action Plan (Appendix A) and an update on the National Prevention Strategy indicators (Appendix B). The National Prevention Council Action Plan identifies National Prevention Council commitments shared across all 17 departments and unique department actions being taken to implement federal actions related to each of the Strategic Directions and Priorities of the National Prevention Strategy. The National Prevention Council Action Plan is not intended to be a complete inventory of the full range or scope of prevention efforts across the federal government. It presents important actions that illustrate the significant breadth of activities and represent the commitment made by the entire council. In addition, all action items—whether new or existing initiatives—are subject to the annual budget processes that require balancing priorities within available resources.
