All reports and publications were created by, or included the participation of, the Florida Department of Health, Injury Prevention Program.
*Note: As of July 1, 2012, the Office of Injury Prevention became the Injury Prevention Program. Documents and activities finalized prior to this date will retain "Office of Injury Prevention".
The 2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan serves as a successor to Florida’s 2004–2008 Injury Prevention Strategic Plan, which is considered nationally as a model state plan. Florida is the first state injury prevention program to complete the implementation of an existing five–year strategic plan while drafting a successor plan. Planning for the 2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan began in October 2007, and continued throughout 2008. During this time, the Office of Injury Prevention (now the Injury Prevention Program), Florida Injury Prevention Advisory Council and Goal Team Members developed by consensus this plan’s Vision and Mission Statements, plus five data–driven goals and their associated strategies.
The public health injury surveillance and prevention program grant from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provided core capacity funding for state plan development and implementation through July 31, 2011. The Office of Injury Prevention was one of 20 state health department injury prevention offices awarded the five year Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program grant by the CDC. Implementation of the 2009–2013 Florida Injury Prevention Strategic Plan will continue with this grant funding.
The injury prevention strategic plan and corresponding yearly action plans are not intended to supplant the many outstanding state and local injury prevention efforts currently underway, but rather to complement, enhance, strengthen, and fill gaps in those initiatives.
The Injury Prevention Program maintains the statewide Injury Surveillance Data System, a great resource for state and local injury data. The Injury Surveillance Data System provides access to injury data and information from multiple sources through fact sheets, top 10 charts, state/county injury profiles, and through detailed mechanism-specific fact sheets.
To view all of the injury data reports, please see the Florida Injury Surveillance Data System page.
