Module 3: Implementation
Successful health promotion and disease prevention programs gather information on the target population by conducting a needs assessment. The needs assessment allows programs to identify opportunities for health promotion and disease prevention efforts, potential barriers, and appropriate strategies to address them. This knowledge is integrated into program planning, development, and implementation. This module presents important implementation considerations for health promotion and disease prevention programs.
