About the It Takes A Village Partnership

In February 2012, several North Texas leaders and organizations launched It Takes A Village to enhance understanding of the value of primary prevention and how environmental and policy approaches lead to better health outcomes. The intent is to inspire long-term improvements in health, wellness and safety. ITAV also promotes economic development in the region by educating stakeholders about the importance of prevention.
