Injury and Violence Prevention

The American Public Health Association (APHA) works with partners such as the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) – to bring national attention to the burden of injury and violence and employs a public health approach for its prevention and control. APHA recognizes that policy strategies are paramount in addressing injury and violence prevention at a population-based level as well.

These activities are a part of the Center for Professional Development, Public Health Systems and Partnerships' portfolio which brings together several programs that intersect to educate, inform and communicate with the public health workforce.

What’s New?

APHA recognizes that policy strategies are paramount in addressing injury and violence prevention at a population-based level.With that, we have developed, "Injury and Violence Prevention: Policy Lessons from the Field" , which was written for public health practitioners working in the field of injury and violence prevention. It provides a concise overview of the role of policy in furthering injury and violence prevention goals.
