Opportunities for Heath Promotion and Disease Prevention in Rural Areas

Rural programs are well positioned to implement successful health promotion and disease prevention strategies, despite facing challenges such as chronic disease, poverty, lower educational attainment, and access to transportation, among others. Successful health promotion programs will identify and draw upon community strengths. These strengths may help rural communities to overcome barriers to implementing health promotion and disease prevention programs. Examples of rural strengths include:

  • Strong social networks and connections
  • Emphasis on relationships with family and neighbors
  • Supportive communities
  • Common shared values and collective interest in improving health
  • Smaller scale and scope of programs, which may accelerate opportunity
  • Willingness and confidence to confront challenges
  • Centralized communication channels
  • Creativity and devotion to achieving success

    Chronic diseases—such as heart disease, cancer, and type 2 diabetes—are the leading causes of death and disability in the United States. They are also leading drivers of the nation’s $3.3 trillion in annual health care costs.

    Many chronic diseases are caused by a short list of risk behaviors: tobacco use, poor nutrition, lack of physical activity, and excessive alcohol use. CDC’s National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion works to improve health for adults by:

    Helping Smokers Quit and Supporting Comprehensive Programs

    Tobacco use is the leading cause of preventable disease, disability, and death in the United States. As of 2018, about 34 million US adults smoke cigarettes, and every day, about 1,600 young people under 18 try their first cigarette. In addition, 58 million nonsmokers are exposed to secondhand smoke every year.

    CDC’s Office on Smoking and Health focuses on motivating US adults who smoke to try to quit through its Tips From Former Smokers® (Tips®) campaign. Tips features real people—not actors—who are living with serious health conditions caused by smoking and secondhand smoke exposure. It connects people who smoke with resources to help them quit, including 1-800-QUIT-NOW.

    CDC also funds comprehensive tobacco control activities nationwide through the National Tobacco Control Program to:

    • Prevent young people from starting to smoke.
    • Promote quitting among adults and young people.
    • Reduce exposure to secondhand smoke.
    • Identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities.A healthy diet and regular physical activity can help prevent weight gain, heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and some kinds of cancer. But only 1 in 10 US adults eats enough fruits or vegetables. Nine in 10 Americans consume more than the recommended amount of sodium. In addition, only half of adults get enough physical activity, and 72% are overweight or have obesity.

      CDC’s Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity develops and shares evidence-based approaches that help make healthy living easier for everyone. CDC works with states, communities, and national partners to help increase healthy food options where people live, learn, work, and play. CDC also partners with state and local governments to promote improvements in community design—such as sidewalks and parks—that make physical activity safer and more convenient for people of all ages and abilities.
