Take Care New York: A Policy Agenda to Improve the Health of all New Yorkers
Take Care New York (TCNY) is the City’s strategic health agenda to help all New Yorkers live healthier and longer lives. First launched in 2004, Take Care New York was established as a four year initiative, setting ambitious public health goals for 2008. Having made significant strides on its initial goals, the Health Department refined its priorities and set even bolder targets for Take Care New York 2012. Take Care New York tackles the leading causes of preventable illness and premature death in New York City. We focus on ten priority areas in order to:

  • Improve the health status of all New Yorkers
  • Advance health promoting policies and activities
  • Create, sustain and strengthen community collaborations
