Addressing Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) is one of the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control’s (NCIPC) three priority topics (in addition to suicide and overdose prevention). CDC is committed to preventing, identifying, and responding to ACEs at the community, state, and national levels so that all people can achieve lifelong health and wellbeing. NCIPC’s goal is to create the conditions for strong, thriving families and communities where all children and youth are free from harm. This document outlines the Injury Center’s priorities for our ACEs-related research over the next three to five years. This prioritized research is organized in a conceptually sequential structure across the public health model,
such that all research efforts ultimately inform more effective and equitable approaches to prevention and intervention. This document is intended to identify and prioritize domains for NCIPC’s research inquiry and provide examples of the types of questions that will drive this research rather than identify specific hypotheses that might fall into these domains.
