It is AHRQ's mission to improve the safety, quality, efficiency, and effectiveness of health care for all Americans. The USPSTF is a prime example of the Agency's efforts to translate research on preventive medicine into practice.
In keeping with its mission and the importance of prevention, AHRQ has augmented its support staff for the USPSTF and for its prevention programs in general. The AHRQ Center for Primary Care, Prevention, and Clinical Partnerships oversees operation of the USPSTF, and provides administrative, programmatic, and technical support for the USPSTF program.
