Objectives: To assist State and local health authorities and other health related organizations in controlling communicable diseases, chronic diseases and disorders, and other preventable health conditions. Investigations and evaluation of all methods of controlling or preventing disease and disability are carried out by providing epidemic aid, surveillance, technical assistance, consultation, and program support; and by providing leadership and coordination of joint national, State, and local efforts. STEPS- To enable communities to reduce the burden of chronic disease, including: preventing diabetes among populations with pre-diabetes; increasing the likelihood that persons with undiagnosed diabetes are diagnosed; reducing complications of diabetes; preventing overweight and obesity; reducing overweight and obesity; and reducing the complications of asthma. STEPS will achieve these outcomes by improving nutrition; increasing physical activity; preventing tobacco use and exposure, targeting adults who are diabetic or who live with persons with asthma; increasing tobacco cessation, targeting adults who are diabetic or who live with persons with asthma; increasing use of appropriate health care services; improving the quality of care; and increasing effective self-management of chronic diseases and associated risk factors. REACH - REACH U.S. supports community coalitions that design, implement, evaluate, and disseminate community-driven strategies to eliminate health disparities Racial and ethnic groups targeted include: African American/Black, American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander, and Hispanic/Latino. Health priority areas include: breast and cervical cancer; cardiovascular disease; diabetes mellitus; adult/older adult immunization, hepatitis B, and/or tuberculosis; asthma; and infant mortality. Vulnerable Populations: The purpose of this program is to reduce morbidity, premature mortality, and eliminate health disparities associated with diabetes. This will be done by funding organizations to mobilize community partners and assist them to effectively plan, develop,implement, and evaluate community-based interventions to reduce the risk factors that influence the disproportionate burden of diabetes in vulnerable populations borne by many communities in regions across the country.
