CDC 6|18 Initiative Case Study

Enhancing Prevention and Population Health Education by Accelerating Evidence into Action


Deadline: January 31, 2017

The Association for Prevention Teaching and Research (APTR) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announce the availability of funds to develop problem-based case studies aimed at deepening health professions students’ understanding of the value of public health–health care collaboration.

Through the 6|18 Initiative, CDC is partnering with health care purchasers, payers, and providers to improve health and control health care costs. CDC provides these partners with rigorous evidence about six high-burden health conditions and associated interventions to inform their decisions to have the greatest health and cost impact. This initiative offers proven interventions that prevent chronic and infectious diseases by increasing their coverage, access, utilization and quality.

In particular, CDC is targeting six common and costly health conditions – tobacco use, high blood pressure, healthcare-associated infections, asthma, unintended pregnancies, and diabetes – with 18 proven specific interventions that form the starting point of discussions with purchasers, payers, and providers. It aligns these evidence-based preventive practices with emerging value-based payment and delivery models. For more information and resources, please go to
