CDC's Prevention Program

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has developed an extensive research and public health program to prevent child abuse and neglect. A catalog of these CDC efforts is now available in Preventing Child Maltreatment: Program Activities Guide.

The guide presents brief synopses of CDC activities in four areas:

  • Monitoring, tracking, and researching the problem
  • Developing and evaluating prevention strategies
  • Supporting and enhancing prevention programs
  • Encouraging research and development

The guide is available on the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/ViolencePrevention/pub/PreventingCM.html
