Promoting and protecting the health and safety of all Idahoans

Heart Disease & Stroke Prevention Program (HDSP)

The Heart Disease and Stroke Prevention Program (HDSP) and the Idaho Diabetes Prevention and Control Program (DPCP) work closely together as the Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Stroke Prevention Program (DHDSP) to implement cross-cutting approaches to prevent and control diabetes and hypertension.These chronic diseases often happen at the same time and are the result of risk factors that are related. 

The strategies to prevent these health conditions are often similar and by combining approaches, the two public health programs work together to make more of an impact and increase efficiency.
