Is "policy and environmental change" just a trend, like CQM?
Public health programs have demonstrated remarkable health behavior improvements by using policy and environmental change strategies since the 1980s, particularly in injury control and tobacco control. The 1990s brought such tobacco control programs to all U.S. states. These policy approaches were applied to nutrition and physical activity as early as the late 1990s. These strategies have been building over time, with continuing proven successes.
