    In the United States, during the last century, the diseases that cause the most death, illness, and disability changed dramatically from infectious diseases to chronic diseases. Today, chronic diseases are among the most prevalent and costly of all health problems, with prolonged illness and disability resulting in decreased quality of life for millions of people nationwide. Among chronic diseases, obesity, diabetes, and asthma are three of the most significant contributors to morbidity and mortality in the United States. To further reduce the burden of these diseases and risk factors, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) established the Steps to a HealthierUS Cooperative Agreement Program (Steps Program). The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) coordinates day-to-day management and implementation of the Steps Program. CDC staff provide technical expertise to support program planning and implementation, disease and risk factor surveillance, and program evaluation. For example, CDC helps Steps communities meet fiduciary responsibilities established by the federal government, and coordinates national-level evaluation activities, including program-wide performance measurement. The Steps Program extends the reach of other chronic disease prevention and health promotion activities and advances the Agency’s vision of healthy people in a healthy world through prevention.
