National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention

The National Implementation and Dissemination for Chronic Disease Prevention program brings together the American Heart Association, the American Planning Association, the National WIC Association, the Directors of Health Promotion and Education, and SOPHE to implement, evaluate and disseminate evidence and practice based community health activities.

Under the name, Partnering4Health, this project builds upon Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Division of Community Health's history of working with national organizations to provide financial resources, guidance, training, tools, and other assistance to local coalitions interested in creating communities where people can achieve optimal health through developing their capacity to implement policy, systems, and environmental improvements.

Through this opportunity, The American Heart Association, American Planning Association, and National WIC Association offer grants to chapters/affiliates to build and strengthen the community's ability to use population-based strategies that create healthier communities.

SOPHE, and the Directors of Health Promotion and Education serve as technical assistance providers.

The national organizations work together to coordinate strategies and technical assistance to maximize our collective impact, increase national and local awareness of community health work, and ensure that identified communities are able to increase their capacity and achieve sustainable improvements that will continue after this program funding ends.
