Model Policies

The Chronic Disease Partners Model Policy Workgroup develops policies to help you make positive changes in your community. Each one is evidence-based and can be adapted to fit your specific needs.

Enacting a policy alone doesn’t ensure that the policy will be successful. Additional steps are often necessary along the way to increase the likelihood of the policy achieving its intended outcomes. The CDC Office of the Associate Director for Policy and Strategy policy process guide can assist health partners in their work.
