Montana Chronic Disease Plan

The Montana Chronic Disease Plan, published in 2013, is a 5-year guide for statewide activities to reduce the burden of chronic disease in Montana. Chronic diseases are among the most common, costly and preventable of all health problems in the U.S. Successful implementation of the plan will require the leadership and effort of a diverse group of partners representing the many individuals and organizations in Montana. The plan serves as a framework for a coordinated approach to effectively prevent chronic disease and unintentional injury, and promote the health of all Montanans.

National Context

State Public Health Actions infographic

The State Public Health Actions (1305) and the Four Domains of Chronic Disease Prevention Infographic shows how we are part of a national effort for chronic disease prevention and health promotion. From 2013 to 2018, the Montana Diabetes Program is implementing a work plan under the State Public Health Actions to Prevent and Control Diabetes, Heart Disease, Obesity and Associated Risk Factors and Promote School Health (1305) grant funded by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. The objectives of this work plan can only be accomplished through the joint efforts of healthcare leaders, insurers, public health agencies, policy makers, and healthcare organizations serving Montanans, and the engagement of the people of Montana.
