The Community Preventive Services Task Force announced the launch of a new online resource. The Community Guide Toolbox  works hand-in-hand with The Community Guide website to help public health practitioners apply evidence-based intervention strategies. The Toolbox contains more than 20 tools for putting the recommendations found in The Community Guide into practice.

The Guide to Community Preventive Services is a free resource to help you choose programs and policies to improve health and prevent disease in your community. Systematic reviews are used to answer these questions:

  • Which program and policy interventions have been proven effective?
  • Are there effective interventions that are right for my community?
  • What might effective interventions cost; what is the likely return on investment?

Learn more about The Community Guidecollaborators involved in its development and dissemination, and methods used to conduct the systematic reviews.
