Conclusion from CDC
“ Evidence-based preventive services are effective in reducing death and
disability, and are cost-effective or even cost-saving. Preventive services
consist of screening tests, counseling, immunizations or medications used
to prevent disease, detect health problems early, or provide people with the
information they need to make good decisions about their health. While
preventive services are traditionally delivered in clinical settings, some can
be delivered within communities, work sites, schools, residential treatment
centers, or homes. Clinical preventive services can be supported and
reinforced by community-based prevention, policies, and programs.
Community programs can also play a role in promoting the use of clinical
preventive service and assisting patients in overcoming barriers
(e.g., transportation, child care, patient navigation issues).”
