National Prevention Strategy: America’s Plan for Better Health and Wellness

June 1, 2011 

The Affordable Care Act, landmark health legislation passed in 2010, created the National Prevention Council and called for the development of the National Prevention Strategy to realize the benefits of prevention for all Americans’ health. The National Prevention Strategy is critical to the prevention focus of the Affordable Care Act and builds on the law’s efforts to lower health care costs, improve the quality of care, and provide coverage options for the uninsured.
