New ASTHO Webpage: Preventing Firearm Injury and Death

ASTHO supports preventing injuries and violence across the lifespan. Effective interventions should address all age groups to encourage the systematic and long-term prevention of injuries and violence. Prevention strategies that intersect families, schools, neighborhoods, and worksites reinforce core sets of principles that safeguard against injury and discourage violence. State and territorial health agencies continuously work on developing public health interventions focused on preventing suicide, youth violence, and intimate partner violence, and on strengthening the public health response to adverse events through building community resiliency.

Resources Include:

a. Featured Publications and Sign-On Letters

b. Federal Reports and Current Proposals

c. Evidence-Based Strategies and Public Health Approaches

d. Cost Data

e. Mental Health Resources

f. Preparedness Resources

g. Academia and Research Centers

h. Examples of Laws Being Introduced in States
