Advocating for Chronic Disease Management and Prevention 2011

This report presents data on the current state of chronic disease in West Virginia, as well as the most recent data available on the socioeconomic and behavioral risk factors that contribute to the development of chronic conditions among our residents. (See Appendix B for more information on the methodologies used to derive the data in the report.) Many of these risk factors are preventable; the course of chronic illness in West Virginia can be changed. The report also includes a discussion of the direction the Division of Health Promotion and Chronic Disease and its partners will take to reverse the toll of chronic disease on our citizens and our economy. The challenge lies in creating an integrated approach at the state level aimed at addressing the fact that many individuals in our state suffer from more than one chronic illness or condition and have more than one risk factor for these diseases. Coordination between our state resources and those of our partners is essential in effectively meeting this challenge.
