Appendix 3

Draft Principles for Prioritization

  • Need framework/logic model
  • Need specified objectives
    • Improve population health and reduce disparities
  • Need measures usable across multiple domains
  • Need to consider costs
  • Net health benefits may provide useful framework
  • Uncertainty should influence priority
  • Information to guide future priorities is valuable
  • Can't prioritize interventions but can provide tools/process
  • Prioritization at multiple levels of action (national/state/local)
  • Prioritize objectives vs. interventions as appropriate
  • Need transparency
  • Past objectives/barriers/experience should inform priorities
