Advocating for Violent Death Reporting
Members of the National Violence Prevention Network advocate for the continued full participation and funding for the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS), as well as better utilization of available data to conduct research and develop effective prevention strategies and policies.
Network members come together to advocate for the continued funding and implementation of the program, expand awareness of its uses, and further enhance the ability of national and state health officials and law enforcement to use NVDRS data to inform policy, prevent violent deaths and save lives.
You can also learn more about the focus of member organizations and how each advocates for improved violent death reporting and prevention strategies among their memberships, policymakers, stakeholders and the public. See our latest news and announcements on the About page.
