    The Tennessee Department of Health’s Primary Prevention Initiative enables all employees, no matter their role in the Department, to be part of community partnerships that focus on primary prevention efforts across Tennessee.  To date, more than 95% of the workforce in local public health departments have engaged in over 2,000 Primary Prevention Initiatives.

    Learn more about this and other Primary Prevention activities such as the Department’s built environment staff , funding opportunities to increase physical activity and the Tennessee Livability Collaborative -Tennessee’s Health in All Policies Approach to state government.  This 10-agency member Collaborative is one of only four examples in the U.S. of states that take a Health in All Policies approach to improving population, environmental and economic health.
