CDC Publishes Special Journal Issue on Violence and Injury Prevention

This week, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) published a special issue of the Journal of Public Health Management and Practice titled “Catalyzing State Public Health Agency Actions to Prevent Injuries and Violence.”

The special issue features eight articles that highlight programs within CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. The articles illustrate the relationship between science and practice as mutually reinforcing components of a systems approach to violence and injury prevention. Topics covered through the journal articles include program evaluation, opioid epidemic response, risk and protective factors of violence, and state-based prevention plans.
