Ohio ACEs Impact project

Led by the Health Policy Institute of Ohio and informed by a multi-sector advisory group, this project includes a series of three policy briefs and a resource page to build on and amplify current efforts to address ACEs in Ohio. Exposure to ACEs is a pervasive problem in Ohio and across the nation. Nearly two-thirds of Ohioans have been exposed to an ACE, with more than one-third of Ohioans exposed to two or more ACEs.

In August 2020, HPIO released the first brief in this project, Health impact of ACEs in Ohio, which summarizes current research and provides new analysis on the health impacts of ACEs on Ohioans. The second brief, Economic impact of ACEs in Ohio, released in February 2021, summarizes national research and provides Ohio-specific analysis on healthcare and other costs attributable to ACEs in Ohio. The third brief, A strategic approach to prevent ACEs in Ohio, builds on previous briefs by identifying evidence-informed and cost-effective strategies to prevent and mitigate the impacts of ACEs.
