Preventing Chronic Disease is a peer-reviewed open access medical journal established by the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), covering research on all aspects of chronic diseases.

The PCD Collections are articles grouped together that feature a common theme. One example involved publication of articles on Aboriginal populations with the Public Health Agency of Canada journal Chronic Diseases in Canada in 2010.[1] Other collections have focused on veteran's health, community health, and healthy aging.[2]

According to the Journal Citation Reports, the journal has a 2014 impact factor of 2.123.[3]
