Community service providers often find it difficult to prove that their health promotion programs are efficient or effective, or make tangible, positive differences in the lives of their clients.

A variety of federal agencies and private foundations are coordinating efforts to support the implementation of evidence-based prevention programs at the community level through aging services provider organizations, such as senior centers, nutrition programs and senior housing projects.

Evidence-based programs are proven to be effective in reducing the risk of disease, disability and injury. By implementing interventions that have proven to be effective in reducing the risk of disease, disability and injury among the elderly, State and local programs will be able to improve the health status of this vulnerable population.

Evidence based programs are interventions based on evidence that is generated by scientific studies published in peer-reviewed journals.
