The Action Plan on the Prevention of Chronic Diseases for Puerto Rico for the years 2014-2020 illustrates how chronic diseases significantly affect the lives of people living with these conditions and those who are at risk of developing them. The Puerto Rico Department of Health recognizes that the basis of this Plan is to achieve a healthy population, and our public health efforts are aimed at facilitating better access to appropriate health services, environments that promote proactive and healthy behaviours, like healthy eating and physical activity. This plan includes cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, asthma, arthritics and Alzheimer’s disease among others. The Plan is designed to provide a common framework for strategies for action in four key domains: epidemiology and surveillance, health systems, clinic and community links, and strategies that support and reinforce healthy behaviors.
