CDC Community Guide: NNPHI promotes the use of evidence in public health programs is through our work with the Guide to Community Preventive Services, a collaboration with the CDC and several national organization partners. The Community Guide is a free CDC resource, developed to help users choose programs and policies that have been systematically reviewed and labeled with a level of effectiveness. NNPHI promotes public health institute and health department partnerships to adopt and utilize the recommendations outline in the Community Guide.
Native Youth Project: NNPHI is promoting the use of evidence is through the Native Youth Project (NYP) in collaboration with CDC's National Center for HIV, STD, Viral Hepatitis and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) and Healthy Teen Network (HTN). The program is building the capacity of seven community-based organizations to use evidence-based programs to address disparities experienced by Native American youth, specifically regarding teen pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases. The seven sites are receiving technical assistance as they select an evidence-based program, make culturally appropriate adaptations and implement the adapted program within the communities they serve.
