Considerations on establishing prevention reporting at the national level in Germany

Research output: Journal contributionsJournal articlesTransferpeer-review


The adoption of the Preventive Health Care Act in July 2015 was a key step in strengthening settings-based health promotion and disease prevention. This increases the importance of developing prevention reporting at the national
level. In light of international experiences, we therefore propose a multi-step process, which formulates specific goals based on epidemiologically grounded public health needs, which should then be addressed through appropriate
intervention strategies. The implementation status of activities needs to be continuously documented and their effectiveness evaluated.
