Our Partners

As part of its efforts to make its work as transparent as possible and enhance the accuracy and relevance of its recommendations, the Task Force works with a group of partner organizations. They include federal agencies that are stakeholders in the process and Dissemination and Implementation partners that represent primary care clinicians, consumers, and other stakeholders involved in the delivery of primary care.

Partner organization representatives contribute their expertise, help disseminate the work of the USPSTF to their members and constituents, and help put the recommendations into practice. Partners are also a powerful vehicle for ensuring that America's primary care workforce remains up to date on USPSTF recommendations.

Current partners and others interested in learning more about the Task Force can find helpful materials on the Task Force 101 Resources page.

A list of the Task Force's partners is below.

"The USPSTF’s recommendations are considered the ‘gold standard’ for clinical preventive services... We fully support the USPSTF as an independent body to apply rigor and objectivity to the analysis of clinical preventive care ... Our common goal is to improve the health of all Americans, and we believe the Task Force is the best way to ensure clinical preventive recommendations are guided by science.”
