In this 2014–2015 Annual Report to Congress, the Community Preventive Services Task Force (Task Force) helps to build the evidence base for public health programs, policies, and services. This report includes past accomplishments and lays out future priorities and plans. The Task Force features its work in strengthening our nation's ability to prevent cancers—all-too-common illnesses that place a great burden on individuals, their families, places of work, communities, and our healthcare system. The report also includes areas where more research and programs are needed to prevent and reduce cancers.
The Community Preventive Services Task Force is an independent, nonpartisan, nonfederal, unpaid 15-member panel of public health and prevention experts appointed by the Director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Its members represent a broad range of local, state, and national research, practice, and policy expertise in community preventive services, public health, health promotion, and disease prevention.
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides “ongoing administrative, research, and technical support for the operations of the Task Force.”
