  • Description:
    The Community Preventive Services Task Force (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). The Task Force was established in 1996 by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to support the efforts of a wide range of U.S. decision makers by identifying programs, services, and policies that can be carried out in communities, states and healthcare settings to help save American lives and dollars, increase longevity, and improve quality of life. The work of the Task Force, as defined in Section 399U of the Public Health Service Act [42 U.S.C. §280g-10] includes eight activities. Of the these activities, the Task Force provides annual reports to Congress and related agencies identifying remaining evidence gaps and recommending priority areas deserving further examination.

    The intent of this report and future annual reports to Congress is to provide updates on the work of the Community Preventive Services Task Force as it helps to strengthen the evidence base for public health.

    This 2014–2015 Annual Report to Congress highlights the Task Force ‘s 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. This report also summarizes the recent recommendations of the Task Force in multiple areas, where knowledge and prevention have the potential to reduce illness, injury, disability, and premature death and improve well-being.

    The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention provides administrative, research, and technical support for the Community Preventive Services Task Force.
