Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Strategic Plan 2023-2027

Throughout the development of this strategic plan, many public health professionals working in the field of chronic disease across the state volunteered their expertise, experience, and leadership to provide meaningful insight regarding the needs of the community and needs of public health partners in order to decrease the burden of chronic disease in Nevada. The Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDPHP) Section is grateful to these partners for providing insight and recommendations to improve our work, and intends to honor that insight by focusing efforts around the goals outlined in this plan. Through robust and meaningful partnership, the professionals at Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion are dedicated to implementing meaningful prevention programs for all Nevadans. This plan is in full alignment with the CDPHP mission: to maximize the health of Nevadans by improving policy, systems, and environment that influence quality of life. Click the image to the right to download the Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion Strategic Plan 2023-2027.

2023 Health Disparity Report

The Division of Public and Behavioral Health actively pursues grants available from the Federal Government and other sources, specifically designed to address disparities in healthcare and health outcomes based on race, color, ancestry, national origin, disability, familial status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, immigration status, primary language, or income level. In notable achievement, the State of Nevada’s Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (CDPHP) Section, housed within the Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH), secured a substantial $32 million grant through the OT21-2103: National Initiative to Address COVID-19 Health Disparities Among Populations at High-Risk and Underserved, Including Racial and Ethnic Minority Populations and Rural Communities. The primary objective of this funding initiative is to address COVID-19-related health disparities and promote health equity by enhancing the capacity and services of state, local, US territorial, and freely associated state health departments. These grant funds aim to diminish COVID-19 disparities, particularly impacting high-risk and underserved populations, such as racial and ethnic minorities and rural communities spread across Nevada. The funding and period of performance is two (2) years, from June 1, 2021, to May 31, 2023. CDPHP was granted a No Cost Extension, which extended the project date until May 31, 2024. Employing the Logic Model for OT21-2103, provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a guiding resource, CDPHP adeptly guided program development and implementation of the project. Disparity reduction in health outcomes is routinely embedded in categorical funding across the Division.
