💡 Imagined Endstate:

💥 What's the Big Deal: 

The report by Wallace and Rademacher (2023) provides a comprehensive and practical toolkit for state and territorial health agencies to develop and implement policies that prevent and mitigate ACEs.🌈The report covers the epidemiology, etiology, consequences, and prevention strategies of ACEs and various stakeholders' policy levers, roles, and responsibilitiesThe report also provides examples of state and territorial policies and programs that address ACEs and resources and tools for policy development and evaluation. 
ACEs are a vital challenge for the Pacific region, as they affect the health and well-being of many children and families, especially those who face social and economic disparities.🙌By implementing evidence-based policies and practices that prevent and mitigate ACEs, the Pacific region can enhance its health, safety, and well-being and reduce the risk of adverse outcomes and intergenerational cycles of trauma. 🏥 The policies and practices can also support the region's health, safety, and well-being and enable more children and families to thrive in supportive and nurturing environments.
