Description:The seven Winnable Battles address the leading causes of death and disability and represent enormous societal costs. For each, implementing evidence-based interventions helps us get results relatively quickly. While not deemphasizing work in other areas, Winnable Battles helps drive focus and accelerates improved outcomes. Two of the seven Winnable Battles have already met or exceeded their original targets, but despite gains much work remains.
With strong partnerships, we can make significant progress.
• Nutrition, Physical activity, Obesity
• Food safety
• Motor vehicle safety
• Teen pregnancy
• HIV in the U.S.
We know what works. The time is now to put knowledge into action.
