Health in Common

The Chronic Disease Prevention Initiative (CDPI) is an effort supported by the Ministry of Healthy Living of Manitoba, designed to prevent chronic disease in the province. CDPI-related projects are community initiated, planned and led, and address the three major risk factors that lead to chronic disease: smoking, physical inactivity and unhealthy eating. CDPI supports people to live smoke-free, encourages healthy eating and promotes active living. Participating communities design programs to address the risk factors that affect their members. CDPI is a five-year demonstration project jointly funded by Manitoba Health and Healthy Living and the Public Health Agency of Canada to March 2010. CDPI has been implemented in 10 Regional Health Authorities in Manitoba involving 83 communities including 21 First Nation and 7 Métis communities. Approximately 330,000 Manitobans are being reached through CDPI.
