NHP Action Tools can assist you in planning your full journey by helping you better understand NHP data and how to connect it with other available data, cultivate ideas for taking action, and build or enhance partnerships that you will need to make your efforts a success.


These tools provide ideas for taking action. They can help you select and implement programs, policies, and system changes that evidence indicates could be helpful in addressing opportunities for improvement identified in NHP reports. Available tools include Diabetes, Tobacco, Heart Disease, Vaccinations and Screenings.
