The New Mexico Shared Strategic Plan for Prevention and Control of Chronic Disease was created by a statewide leadership team during 2010 and the Chronic Disease Prevention Council (CDPC) will facilitate the application of the plan. The mission and the goals in the plan are from various state programs and are made applicable to statewide needs. The plan identifies common risk factors, promotes multi-level prevention and management strategies, and aims to improve health at both the individual and community level.

A shared plan is needed as chronic diseases have overlapping, shared risk factors and rates are increasing, resulting in growing medical costs and adverse personal and social consequences. A collaborative approach will allow for great efficiency and effectiveness. Furthermore, a shared plan can better address the issue of health equity and social determinants related to chronic disease, warranting successful partnerships.

The Shared Strategic Plan will result in a more coordinated, concerted effort that taps into the skills, talents and experience of a diversity of organizations. Please click the following link to read over the plan and understand the work of CDPC.
