I-PAG Fact Sheet
The Army is making substantial efforts to further develop its prevention capabilities through the Integrated Prevention Advisory Group (I-PAG), in accordance with our ”People First” priority and the Secretary of the Army’s goal to reduce harmful behaviors across the force. Our people are our greatest strength, and leaders must foster an Army culture and command climate built on trust. More than 1,200 new I-PAG members will have expertise in subjects such as public health surveillance, health promotion, social science, behavioral science, implementation science, program evaluation, quantitative and qualitative methodologies, and statistical analytic techniques. Around 680 individuals will be posted at Headquarters, Department of the Army, Army Commands, Army Service Component Commands, Direct Reporting Units, Commanders at echelon (Brigade Combat Team/Brigade equivalent) and the Army Reserve. The National Guard Bureau will establish its own preventive workforce for units in the 54 states, territories and the District of Columbia, with approximately 325 I-PAG personnel assigned to the Army National Guard.
