  • Description:
    Since 2008, the National Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention (NHDSP) Program has provided funding to 42 State Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Programs. The majority of resources and effort of these programs should be used to address the “ABCS” of heart disease and stroke prevention, with the main focus on preventing and controlling high blood pressure and reducing sodium intake. Efforts to address the “ABCS” include:

    • Aspirin: Increase low dose aspirin therapy according to recognized prevention guidelines.

    • Blood pressure: Prevent and control high blood pressure; reduce sodium intake.

    • Cholesterol: Prevent and control high blood cholesterol.

    • Smoking: Increase the number of smokers counseled to quit and referred to State quit lines; increase availability of no or low-cost cessation products.

    This document outines priority strategies for States to use to address the “ABCS” of heart disease and stroke prevention. It is important for programs to focus their efforts and limited resources on evidence or practice-based strategies that can impact heart disease and stroke and to implement interventions with significant reach and impact.
