CDPHE Introduces New Chronic Disease Resources

Chronic Disease State Plan 2018-2020  


The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is pleased to share the 2018-2020 CDPHE Chronic Disease Plan. This builds on Colorado’s existing state plans and outlines CDPHE’s specific role in addressing the chronic disease burden in Colorado through the identification of data, strategic priorities, emerging work to address these priorities and measu
rable outcomes to map our progress. The 2018-2020 plan serves as a bridge between the 2014-2017 Colorado Chronic Disease State Plan and the next 2020-2024 Colorado Public Health Improvement and 2020-2024 Comprehensive Chronic Disease State Plans.  
CDPHE recognizes the multitude of efforts led by partners across the state. While this plan outlines CDPHE’s role in achieving these targets, reducing the burden of chronic disease takes collaborative and coordinated efforts with all our partners in communities, across regions and at the state level. This plan highlights chronic disease data and CDPHE priorities related to:

  • Chronic Disease Epidemiology and Surveillance
  • Cardiovascular Disease and Diabetes
  • Healthy Eating and Active Living
  • Oral Health
  • Cancer 
  • Pulmonary Disease (Asthma-focused)
  • Tobacco 
  • Health Systems Transformation

VISION (Visual Information System for Identifying Opportunities and Needs)


The VISION tool provides data for chronic disease and behavioral health measures in Colorado. The purpose of this tool is to provide data and visualizations for assessments and data-driven public health planning and program work.  Data are updated as the data source allows to provide the most recent information for Colorado health measures.
