Data Shows Strong Support for Prevention

Americans expressed overwhelming support for community prevention efforts in a public opinion poll released last week by Trust for America’s Health.

According to the poll, 73% of the American public supports allocating resources towards community prevention initiatives. Even more support was shown for prevention initiatives aimed at young people, with 89% of respondents favoring strategies aimed at youth. Also, 79% of respondents indicated that linking community prevention to solving multiple problems is effective, given the current economy and fewer resources being available.
