Public Policy and Advocacy Strategies

Trust for America’s Health created the Promoting Health and Cost Control in States (PHACCS) initiative to provide state leaders with policy recommendations that both promote healthy lifestyles and control costs. The first publication of the PHACCS initiative, "Promoting Health and Cost Control: How States Can Improve Community Health and Well-Being Through Policy Change", identifies key evidence-based and -informed policies and provides detailed information on recommended policies, including descriptions of the policies, summaries of the health and economic evidence, case examples, and considerations for implementation.
