Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention: 2017 - 2025 Strategic Plan

Strategic Plan coverThe Health Promotion and Chronic Disease Prevention section (HPCDP) of the Oregon Health Authority-Public Health Division created this 2017-2025 HPCDP strategic plan to establish clear goals, strategies and objectives to reduce chronic disease and the burden it places on people, communities and the economy.

To reduce the number of people in our state who have risk factors for chronic disease, we must broaden the focus from changing individual behavior to making our communities healthier for everyone. By increasing opportunities for everyone to be healthful in the places where we live, work, learn, play and age, we can reduce the prevalence of risk factors and of chronic diseases; lessen the stigma of living with them; and make a long, healthful life available to every Oregonian. This strategic plan devises strategies that aim to reduce risk factors in two overarching ways:

  • Increasing Oregonians’ access to the option they need to live healthful lives
  • Decrease the availability and excessive marketing of harmful products. plan.
