Injury prevention is part of a comprehensive approach to enhancing health and quality of life for all Vermonters.
Vermont's Injury Prevention Program bases its activities upon a data informed approach to improve our understanding of the causes of injury, populations that are most at risk, trends in a particular type of injury, and the impact of prevention programs.
Data Maps and Trends
Healthy Vermonters 2020 is the State Health Assessment Plan that documents the health status of Vermonters at the start of the decade, and the population health indicators and goals that will guide the work of public health through 2020.
To meet the challenges of keeping Vermont one of America's healthiest states, we track, measure, report on, and apply data in order to achieve our shared goals for improving public health.
