Community Preventive Services Task Force and United States Preventive Services Task Force
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services established CPSTF in 1996 to complement the work of the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).
USPSTF provides evidence-based recommendations for healthcare professionals and decision makers on clinical preventive services based on systematic reviews of available evidence. The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality provides administrative, scientific, and technical support.
Together, CPSTF and USPSTF identify effective, evidence-based preventive interventions to improve health in clinical and community settings across the country. The task forces work together to ensure there is no duplication of effort.
CPSTF and USPSTF annual reports to Congress demonstrate their collaboration and provide a full picture of the nation’s prevention research needs.
